It was a tragedy that shook the nation and caused people to try and help in any way they could.

The Grenfell Tower fire has shown the way communities can help one another and Bridget Orzel from Sew Creative outlet wanted to do her part for all those affected, including emergency services.

The Wroxham Barns based shop owner agreed to be a collection point for anyone who wanted to donate handmade quilts.

Those donating were asked to put a 'made with love' label on the back which were then forwarded to a larger collection point in Wolverhampton.

Mrs Orzel received 38 finished quilts with 12 being finished by volunteers.
