Jamie Oliver has opened the doors of his London Jamie’s Italian restaurant to those affected by the fire at the Grenfell Tower in London.
A fire broke out in the residential building this morning, and according to reports had claimed 12 lives at the time of writing.
Oliver posted a pic of the burning building on Instagram with this touching caption:
“To any of the 100’s of FAMILIES effected by this terrible fire at Grenfell Tower Notting hill today, You are all welcome to come hang out in my restaurant and be fed and watered by my Jamies Italian team. We are in the Westfield just around the corner.
“Food and drink free of charge so just go and speak to my manager Juan and we will sort you out and give you some love …. this is for victims of the fire our thoughts, love and prayers are with you all big love jamie x x x x”
South Africans have also shown their kindness over the past few days after wildfires swept through Knysna.
Shops, businesses and individuals have offered goods, services and time to the many people displaced by the fires.
