A charity football match that raised more than £400,000 for Grenfell Tower survivors has won a community project of the year award.  Former England goalkeeper David Seaman joined a cast of celebrities including Marcus Mumford, Les Ferdinand, Peter Crouch and Damian Lewis at the Game4Grenfell in September last year.

Queens Park Rangers hosted the celebrity showdown at the Loftus Road stadium, situated just a mile away from the site of the disaster.
