City Bridge Trust response to London terror attacks

Alison Gowman, Chairman of the City of London Corporation’s City Bridge Trust Committee, said:

“The events of London Bridge and Borough Market last weekend, so hard on the heels of the attacks in Manchester and Westminster, are tragic and our thoughts are with all the victims and their families.

“In the immediate wake of the London attack we have focused our efforts on supporting the work of the London Emergencies Trust, which was set up after the terrorist attack on Westminster Bridge earlier this year, working closely with the British Red Cross and City Hall.

“City Bridge Trust is supporting the charity London Emergencies Trust (LET), which distributes funds to the families and survivors of terror attacks in the capital.

“We have recently given financial support to the LET and London’s terror victims through a £75,000 grant and we are also resourcing it by providing staff and office space.

“We will continue our work in tackling London’s inequality, bridging divides and strengthening our communities to improve the lives of our extraordinary city and its people.

“It is the responsibility of us all to work together and do all we can to support the victims and families of the weekend’s attack.”
