A founding donation of £50K from the Copeland Community Fund has enabled the Foundation to launch a hardship fund. Grants of up to £1,000 will be available to help people with clean up and recovery. The fund is prioritising people over 70, families with children under the age of 5 and people with disabilities and those on low incomes.
Application forms and criteria can be downloaded from the Foundation’s website. The Foundation’s Director Andy Beeforth said, “It is so very sad that once again people’s lives are being turned upside by flooding. We are hugely grateful for the support of the trustees of the Copeland Community Fund for their speed of response in making this donation to enable us to make grant awards”.
People and organisations can make donations via cheque or on line. All information can be found at www.cumbriafoundation.org
