An appeal launched by Cumbria Community Foundation to support the individuals and communities in South Lakeland devastated by the December flooding and storms in Cumbria.
South Lakeland District Council has committed £50,000 from its own funds to the appeal.
More than 1,400 households were left devastated by recent flooding in the South Lakes area.
Grants to help with cleaning up, emergency repairs, clothing, food and drink, heating, child care equipment and basic furniture will be made to the vulnerable people who need our help most.
The fund is administered by Cumbria Community Foundation, who effectively managed the £3 million Cumbria Flood Recovery Appeal following the floods in 2009.
CCF has a well established and effective system for application, grant
assessment and allocation. CCF is a highly regarded local grant giver with experienced staff and solid systems and processes in place.
It is part of a national and international network of community
foundations. Together they seek to support people and organisations
wishing to invest in the local community.
