"Caring, Empathetic, Responsible & Trustworthy"
Cumbria has been severely hit by storm after storm since the 5th December 2015. The amount of surface water is abundant and the ground has not been able to recover. Roads and bridges still remain closed.
Many homes have been destroyed (6000+) and 1500+ Business also. Leaving people, including children & the elderly very vulnerable. Around 54% of those affected in Cumbria do not have insurance as they are either uninsurable or are priced out of insurance. Of the remainder, a large amount have £10,000 excess or more. Also, it is coming to light that a lot of insurance companies are looking for a way out of paying out those who have been affected and voiding their policies.
This is close to my heart as living in this beautiful county I can't sit back and see those living in it, struggle when I myself have been spared. People need help and support to get back to normal and we can do this by supporting them in whatever way we can. Be it cleaning out their home, supplying them with food or cleaning products. Help them with the supply of items lost due to the floods or just be there for moral support.
Community Emergency Response Team (Formerly Eden Flood Volunteers) continue to support those affected by the floods. We will. where we can provide volunteers and transport to pack up homes and move people. We will provide as many persons as possible with the goods which they need to move forward with their lives. These could be towels, bedding or crockery, furniture or equipment.
Supporters are already seeing the difference that our service has made to them in their lives. Also, going forward they will continue to see this online, in the media and local & national press.
