Disaster Support

Rotarians provide actual help and support when it is needed in our local area and beyond.

Cumbria and Lancashire Flood 2015

A message from DG Bob Acland

Rotarians are active in flood relief efforts in D 1190 which covers both counties.

The 1190 District Governor in in touch regularly with me and thanks Rotarians for their offers of help and support.

The D1200 emergency response team, are sending dehumidifiers which are needed;  water survival box  filters were offered but were not needed.

Many clubs have offered financial donations and two funds have been established by 1190 one for each county. The District team in 1190 will split any donations equally unless specified differently

If you wish to donate please do so via our D 1200 District Treasurer, Rory O'Donnell. Cheques made payable to "D1200 trust account" should be sent to his home addres.   Our Treasurer will send a collective cheque or electronically credit the D1190 accounts.

Separately, I'm informed that the "Rotary GB&I Donations Trust" does not currently plan an appeal but have funds to support claims for community projects.

I will update the Website as more information or requests are received.
