JustGiving page aims to use power of the AJ100 Awards to help the victims of the huge fire at Grenfell Tower in west London
All money donated to the AJ’s Just Giving page will go towards helping those affected by the events in west London earlier today (14 June).
As of Thursday morning 220 donors had given generously towards the fund. We have been overwhelmed by the response from architects and our readers. Having exceeded our initial target of raising £5,000, we are now hoping to raise £10,000.
Thank you to everyone who has donated.

Great idea. Basic solidarity gets everyone through Bruce Austen
This should never happen and we should do everything we can to avoid it happening again. Thanks for setting up this page Andrea Tse

Utterly utterly shocking. Thinking of all those involved. I only live down the road. We are all anticipating the results of the investigation. Disbelief and sadness has quickly turned to anger Juliet Murphy
Will, a very worthy cause and one that the profession should support John McRae
