South Yorkshire flood appeal smashes £300,000 barrier as donations continue to come in
An appeal to raise cash for victims of South Yorkshire’s devastating floods has smashed through the £300,000 barrier as donations continue to to come in.
South Yorkshire's Community Foundation Flood Disaster Relief Appeal has raised a whopping £307,000 since being launched following the devastating floods which swamped houses across Doncaster and other parts of the county.
Fishlake, Bentley, Scawthorpe and Clay Lane were some of the most badly hit areas after the River Don broke its banks in several places following a day of ‘biblical’ rainfall.
Since then, dozens of fundraising campaigns have been organised, while there have also been appeals for cleaning equipment, decorating supplies and other household equipment.
Doncaster schools have held non-uniform and fundraising days while a special fundraising concert will be held at The Dome next month.
SYCF launched the emergency appeal in response to the widespread flooding that has affected much of South Yorkshire in recent weeks.
The appeal will support families and local people who have been displaced from their homes and had their properties damaged by the flood waters.
