Tesco collection, Saturday 9th January 2016
Yorkshire Floods 2016 – Rotary in Action
Tesco in Briggresponded very positively to the relief efforts to support flood victims in
Yorkshire by quickly agreeing to a Saturday collection outside their store.
Club members were equally quick to sign up to collect and
the money rolled in as Brigg and area residents responded to the plight of
those whose homes and businesses deluged by the rising water levels from
torrential rain. Many people stopped to recall an experience of how hard it was
to have just a minor water leak to cope manage and could sympathise with what
many people across the country are enduring in the aftermath of the downpours.
collection raise over £1,000 and gift aid will swell that further so the generosity of
Brigg people will go some way to provide welcome assistance to some of the flood
