A Lancashire Flood Recovery Fund Appeal has been launched to support those in need in the county who are victims of Storm Desmond.
Launched by Community Foundation for Lancashire the Recovery Fund’s Appeal will raise funds to contribute to clean-up costs, emergency repairs, clothing, food and drink, heating and heating equipment, childcare equipment and basic furniture, especially in North Lancashire. It will directly support individuals and families already struggling and vital community organisations and resident groups in the areas affected by Storm Desmond. Community Foundation for Lancashire has started the Appeal by making a £5,000 donation from its own Lancashire Community Investment Fund. Local people and businesses can donate to the Recovery Fund’s Public Appeal online via a dedicated MyDonate webpage via www.lancsfoundation.org.uk
This Lancashire Flood Recovery Fund’s Appeal complements the Community Foundation for Cumbria’s Recovery Fund recently launched for the victims of wide-spread flooding in the Lake District.
