The disaster happened in a Kensington tower block two miles from the Standard’s offices.

Corporate donations  to the Standard’s Dispossessed Fund, administered by the London Community Foundation, include: £250,000 from Sky and £100,000 from The Sun.

Daily Mail publisher DMGT (also based in Kensington) has separately given £100,000 to help victims of the disaster.
