I know that we have a strong and pas­sion­ate com­mu­nity here in Che­sham and the sur­round­ing Chilterns who are des­per­ate to help, and I hope that we can all get be­hind this event to raise funds and make a real dif­fer­ence to the fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties who have seen their lives de­stroyed.”
