Flood Appeal's First Grant for St Michael

THE Lancashire Flood Appeal made its 1st grant, on Friday, 11 December 2015, to support those in need in the county who are victims of Storm Desmond. The 1st grant has been made to St Michael's on Wyre Church of England Primary School. It will contribute to the cost of coaches for school visits to the Christmas pantomime and sports facilities for the school children before Christmas. Launched by Community Foundation for Lancashire on 8 December 2015, the Recovery Fund's Appeal raises funds to directly support individuals and families in hardship and vital community organisations and resident groups in the areas affected by Storm Desmond. Applications are now open via a new dedicated website. Funding is available 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. The Recovery Fund's Public Appeal will distribute funds immediately for emergency needs and responses, and will then support clean up work in a 2nd Phase of funding distribution. Community Foundation for Lancashire Chief Executive Cathy Elliott said:- "Thank you to all the local residents and businesses who have donated to the Appeal so far. We hope people will continue to give generously. We now begin the business of distributing important funds to the affected areas."  The Appeal Fund stood at nearly £22,000, on 11 December 2015, having only been launched at 12pm, on Tuesday, 8 December 2015. Proceeds from the Daily Mail's 2015 Christmas Appeal and local fundraising efforts are expected to be received before Christmas to boost the Appeal. 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. Local people and businesses can donate to the Recovery Fund's Public Appeal online, at the new dedicated website mentioned above.
