Crisis On the Somerset Levels
One of our regular readers has asked:
Just wondered whether anyone reading online focus would like to donate to help deal with the crisis on the Levels.There is an immediate need to house and feed thousands of livestock . It is being coordinated from Sedgemoor livestock market in Bridgwater.There are several charities involved.
The National Farmers Union website says:
To donate to help farmers hit by the floods in the South West go to fcn.org.uk or call the hotline on 0845 367 9990.
You can also donate to @Rabicharity (website http://www.rabi.org.uk/) or the Somerset Community Foundation emergency flood relief fund
The Royal Bath & West Society set up The Somerset Levels Relief Fund in September 2013 with the aim of
raising funds towards dredging in the area. Make a donation on 01749 822200 or through their Just Giving page.
