Statement in response to London terror attacks

Author: Bharat Mehta, Advisor, Trust for London

In response to the London terror attacks on Saturday 3 June, Bharat Mehta CBE, Chief Executive of Trust for London, said:

“We at Trust for London are shocked and appalled by the abhorrent acts of terror that occurred on Saturday evening and our thoughts are with the victims and their families at this incredibly difficult time. Following the Westminster Bridge attack earlier this year, we have supported the work of the London Emergencies Trust (LET), providing a £30,000 grant towards helping the bereaved families and injured survivors. We will continue to support LET’s work in the wake of Saturday’s attack. We encourage those who are able to do so to donate to the British Red Cross’ UK Solidarity Fund to support the victims of the London Bridge and Borough Market attack. We stand together with the victims of the Westminster Bridge attack, last month’s atrocity in Manchester and this latest tragedy on Saturday.”

Bharat Mehta CBE, Chief Executive of Trust for London
