The Grenfell community would like as many schools and community groups as possible to wear something green, fundraise for local causes and share their stories, photos and projects from the day on social media using the hashtag #GreenForGrenfellDay. Gov.uk reports.
To help as many schools as possible get involved with this event, the government has supported the community in producing a schools information pack, available to download at www.grenfellunited.org/current-campaigns/green-for-grenfell.
It includes information about the day with ideas on how people can get involved, a poster to display in schools, and a template letter that schools can send to parents to encourage children and their families to take part.
Sandra Ruiz, from Grenfell United, said: “Green for Grenfell Day is an opportunity to celebrate community spirit up and down the country. In the days after the fire, a community of volunteers surrounded us and helped us through the most difficult of times.”
“Anything that brings your community together is what Green for Grenfell Day is all about, that could be wearing green to school, planting trees, painting a community area, holding a coffee morning, anything that celebrates community. We hope people will join with us to make this a special and positive day.”
Green for Grenfell Day asks schools and community groups to wear green on Friday 15 June and get involved in projects which benefit their school and community. Schools are also encouraged to raise money for a local initiative.
