London | Tennis and sports stars unite to launch #Rally4Grenfell

Everyone Active, operator of Westway Sports & Fitness Centre in partnership with Westway Trust, is launching a new fundraising campaign to support those affected by the Grenfell Tower disaster. The #Rally4Grenfell campaign will see up to 1,500 local primary school children descend upon Westway Sports & Fitness Centre on Tuesday 19th June to take part in a tennis festival to commemorate the first-year anniversary of the disaster.

As we come to mark one year since the tragic events of Grenfell, we wanted to commemorate the community spirit during this difficult time. Our community came together in an incredibly powerful way following the Grenfell Tower fire and you could see that every day in the number of volunteers and donations that surrounded Westway Sports & Fitness Centre. Ian Ling - General Manager, Everyone Active

Everyone Active will also be launching a two-month online charity auction which will include a whole range of specially-donated items, from people across sports and showbusiness. Items up for grabs include; a signed match shirt from tennis star, Sir Andy Murray, one pair of hospitality tickets to the Nitto ATP Finals 2018, one pair of corporate hospitality tickets to watch Arsenal play at the Emirates, a badminton masterclass with Gail Emms MBE and a Strength & Conditioning session with Sir Andy Murray’s fitness trainer, Matt Little. The online auction will run from 21st May until the 21st July 2018 and people can either donate a prize, bid on a prize or buy an official #Rally4Grenfell wristband. Visit the auction website here.

You can donate money by texting RFGC99 £3, £5 or £10 to 70070 or visit the #Rally4Grenfell JustGiving website:

All proceeds raised from the auction and tennis festival will go to the British Red Cross London Fire Relief Fund, to provide financial support to the people left injured, bereaved or homeless by the Grenfell disaster.


“As we come to mark one year since the tragic events of Grenfell, we wanted to commemorate the community spirit during this difficult time. Our community came together in an incredibly powerful way following the Grenfell Tower fire and you could see that every day in the number of volunteers and donations that surrounded Westway Sports & Fitness Centre,” says Everyone Active General Manager, Ian Ling.

“We hope that by launching the Rally4Grenfell auction we can raise vital funds for British Red Cross London Fire Relief Fund to help support those left injured, bereaved or homeless by the Grenfell disaster. Sport has an incredible ability to bring people to together and can play a huge role in the healing process. Our tennis festival will provide local school children with a great opportunity to come together and learn a new skill. We look forward to welcoming the community through our doors for this event and hope to make it a real success for everyone to enjoy.”

“The Grenfell Tower has been instrumental throughout my own childhood and this disaster has had a galvanising effect on our community,” says Hamid El-Ouahabi, Sports Mentor at Oxford Gardens Primary School. “Since that day our community has come together on so many different levels through relief, strength, courage and justice. We will never forget those lives lost, particularly those students from our primary school. Sport has the power to uplift people’s spirits and we hope this event will bring our community closer as we remember everyone affected.”

Stephen Wren, Director of Sport and Leisure at Westway Trust, said:
“Westway Sports & Fitness staff worked tireless in the hours and days following the fire to support those affected and I know that many of them were deeply affected by the experience. I also personally witnessed the incredible support that the British Red Cross gave to the relief effort for which I am very grateful. This is a wonderful initiative and the funds raised can have a real impact of the lives of people living in North Kensington.”

Simon Lewis, Head of Crisis Response at the British Red Cross, said:

“The tragic events of last year saw one of the largest humanitarian responses by the British Red Cross here in the UK since World War Two. In the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire we deployed more than 630 volunteers, to support over 1700 people who were left injured, bereaved, or homeless as a result of the fire. Through the enormous generosity of the public we raised £7.3m for the victims and their families. The Westway Sports & Fitness Centre was a vital hub for us to co-ordinate our response last summer, and we are incredibly grateful for their continued support through the Rally4Grenfell event. Money raised will help us continue to support those affected.”
