Thames Community Foundation Joins Flood Fundraising Effort
Now people in Wandsworth can donate locally and do their bit to help.
Thames Community Foundation is joining the efforts to raise funds for people devastated by floods in Cumbria.
The Cumbria Community Foundation set up the Cumbria Flood Recovery Fund on November 20th, the morning after the floods began and donations have already been received from across the UK.
It is helping individuals left homeless and without possessions, and community groups running projects to help the victims.
Now people in Wandsworth can donate locally and do their bit to help. You can log on to http://www.cumbriafoundation.org/ or send cheques to Thames Community Foundation, NPL Building 1 Room 201/206. Hampton Road Teddington TW11 0LW.
The fund total is already at more than £720,000, and every donation, large or small, will help support these struggling communities.
The towns of Cockermouth, Workington and Keswick were worst hit, but there have been pockets of flooding across Cumbria with several rivers bursting their banks.
Thames Community Foundation’s director, Nigel Hay, said:
Deb Muscat, acting director at Cumbria Community Foundation, added:
The Fund will help people with emergency clothes, food, children’s materials and other essentials. It will also fund community groups helping out with advice, information, counselling, and activities.”
