Proceeds from August’s FA Community Shield match between Premier League winners Chelsea and FA Cup winners Arsenal will be donated to the victims of last week’s Grenfell Tower Fire in London, the English Football Association has said. Seventy nine people were killed and thousands more were affected in last week’s tragic apartment fire and football’s national governing body estimates that 1.25 million pounds could be raised towards helping the victims. Survivors of the fire along with victims’ families and emergency workers, who worked on the blaze, will also be invited to watch the August 6 game at Wembley.
