Beam Parklands Fire: A Barking and Dagenham Faith Forum Response

Dear Forum Members and Friends,

The Trustees of the Barking and Dagenham Faith Forum were saddened to hear about the devastating fire yesterday in Beam Parklands. Whilst we were glad to hear that there has been no loss of life, 14 families have now lost their homes and treasured possessions, and others have seen damage to their properties. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by this awful event.

In response, Barking and Dagenham Council have asked that instead of giving directly to those who have been affected, they would like those who wish to help to contribute to an official crowdfunding campaign. We know that faith communities will want to contribute, and we encourage everyone who wishes to do so to go through the official webpage which is available here – https://gofund.me/5d10e73b.

Kind regards,

The Trustees of Barking and Dagenham Faith Forum.
