Following the widespread disruption caused by last week's flooding, an emergency appeal has been set up. South Yorkshire's Community Foundation (SYCF) Flood Disaster Relief Appeal is raising money to support all the people affected by the November 2019 flooding across South Yorkshire.

 

With thousands of people affected, the fund will help people who have been displaced from their homes and had their property damaged. Barnsley CVS is proud to support this cause.

 

There will be difficult months while the true extent of the damage of the floods is assessed, with disruption also expected to schools, community groups, business, roads and public transport.

 

SYCF organised a flood appeal in response to the devastating floods of 2007 which raised £1m to support victims. Keep checking the SYCF website for the application process for emergency grants to those adversely affected.
