FIVE CHILDREN who escaped from Grenfell Tower will deliver a three-minute Christmas Day message about what the holiday means to them, it has been revealed.

The survivors will speak of the impact and share their memories of the tragic fire last June, in which 71 people died and hundreds of families were made homeless, in Channel 4’s alternative Christmas message.

Channel 4 has continued to use their Christmas issue to address pivotal moments over the years. In previous years, Channel 4’s Christmas message has been delivered by Brendan Cox, the husband of the murdered Labour MP Jo Cox, the whistleblower Edward Snowden and the parents of the late Stephen Lawrence.

The broadcast is intended as an alternative to the Queen’s Christmas message aired on the BBC.
