Grab a hankie.

This is both beautiful and tear-inducing: the Guardian tells me that the highest bid in the Authors for Grenfell Tower auction was given to James Clements, a teacher who bid £1,500 to have a character in Philip Pullman's upcoming series named after a former student who died in the fire, 16-year-old Nur Huda el-Wahabi. After reading about Clements's bid, other people began adding their money to his, creating a still-growing pool that is currently in excess of £19,000.
