Thank you for supporting the Walthamstow Appeal!

Walthamstow quote

We would like to thank everyone who has so far supported our appeal to help those employees and businesses that have been affected by the fire which broke out at The Mall Walthamstow on 22 July 2019.

With donations received from 60 individuals and local organisations, we have been overwhelmed by your pledges of support.

Your kind and generous assistance has made an enormous difference to 12 families who have faced hardship since the incident.

“Thank you for your support. I will rest much better now that I know I can keep a roof over my three boys and also feed them.”

“Thank you very much for awarding me with money to feed and keep my family safe.”

The Mall reopens

We are delighted that the Mall reopened its doors to customers on Wednesday, 4 September 2019. While repair works are still underway in some areas of the shopping centre, it is excellent that, the hard work of so many has enabled the majority of retailers to reopen their doors, and once again serve the local community. A small number of retailers most affected by the incident will remain closed as the rebuild continues. 

“Whilst the immediate effects in the aftermath of the fire begin to subside, and extensive effort by so many has now resulted in the reopening of the Mall, it is vital to remember that for many employees and small business owners the fire will continue to have a far reaching impact which may continue to be felt for a significant period of time. retailTRUST is committed to supporting the wellbeing of those affected by the fire.” Cliff Lee, Head of Wellbeing at retailTRUST
