Vigil to honour victims of the London Bridge terrorist attack
There will be a vigil in Potters Fields Park from 6pm this evening - Monday 5 June.
The Mayor invites all Londoners – and everyone visiting our city - to come together in solidarity to remember those who have lost their lives in Saturday's attack, to express sympathy with their families and loved ones and to show the world that we stand united in the face of those who seek to harm us and our way of life.
We will never let these cowards win and we will never be cowed by terrorism.
Members of the public will be able to lay floral tributes at the flagpoles at City Hall.
Please check TfL.gov.uk for updates before travelling.
British Red Cross Solidarity Fund:
Following Saturday’s terror attack in London, The British Red Cross has launched the UK Solidarity Fund to support people who have been injured, bereaved or traumatised by terror attacks, helping to alleviate immediate suffering and ensure that victims and their families do not face short-term financial difficulties. The fund will be supporting the victims and families affected by the London Bridge terror attack.
The British Red Cross is working with the London Emergencies Trust (LET). The Trust, an independent Charity, was set up in 2015 after the 10th anniversary of 7/7 as part of the contingency planning for any further terrorist attack in the capital.
LET is working closely with the Mayor of London, the Metropolitan Police and the Corporation of London and will work with the British Red Cross to disperse donations to victims and families affected by the London Bridge terror attack.
