‘Through the midst of all of this devastation, communities up and down the country have come together and have inundated charities with donations and offers of help.

 

‘This overwhelming outpouring of support just goes to show that pulling together in times of struggle and anguish is what we do in this great country and it’s heart warming to witness. 

 

‘We also take comfort in the amazing response of the real heroes, the men and women who have been tackling this fire for hours on end and risking their own lives to save others. Our thanks and support goes out to these amazing people.’
