A COURIER firm at Park Royal has been honoured for its community support in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

The entire Point to Point team worked with support services to provide residents with basic supplies in the immediate aftermath of the fire.

The volunteers made collections all over London, sorting goods at the warehouse and re-distributing to charity stations located around Grenfell Tower.

Drivers also helped out on arrival, carrying boxes and bags so that volunteers didn’t have to move the parcels again and could, instead, focus on other areas of aid.

In the following days, as news of the Grenfell Tower disaster spread, Point to Point, part of the APC Overnight Network, opened up a free collection service for anyone wishing to donate food, clothes, toys and other goods to survivors.

Point to Point collected its Presidential Award for Community Spirit last week at the Institute of Couriers’ annual ceremony.

Managing director Kevin Grey said: “I couldn’t be prouder of my team. Their tireless work around the tragic events in June epitomised the community spirit that shone through.”
