Fundraising is ongoing from the Boston community, with one community group led by several key players attempting to raise £5,000 for the aftermath of the floods last week.

The Facebook group Get Boston Back On Its Feet, lead by Mark Whelan, Mark Douglass, Sarah Whelan, Eva Harman-Ball and Katie Smith, along with an army of volunteers, are working around the clock with the full backing of Boston Borough Council.

The Boston Flood Appeal, managed through the Facebook page has also been given the full support of the Rap parody group 50Sniffs.

The lads have pledged to donate 100 per cent of all iTunes sales of their album Credit Card Christmas to the Boston Flood Appeal.

Composer John Levine has also agreed to donate 20 per cent of all sales of his latest album Enchanted Forest and donations are also streaming in from over the UK from people who are supporting the town from afar.

On Sunday, the organisers are encouraging people to head to support a friendly rugby match between Boston and Grimsby juniors at the Princess Royal Sports Arena (PRSA), Boston, at 10:30am, where it is believed players from both teams will be doing their part to support the cause.

Donations can be made to the Just Giving site by visiting or on Facebook.

○ Elsewhere, Boston Borough Council’s Fen Road depot will be re-opening Monday morning from 9am-5pm and everyday next week as a drop-off point for any large items of furniture and white goods only.

To donate park in the visitor bays at the office and report to reception.

The food bank at the Zion Methodist Church is also closing today at 4pm (Friday) to then revert back to normal duties.

The council has apologised after saying there will be no more donations to Fenside Community Centre because it is now full.

Volunteers will be out delivering donated goods in the community over the weekend.

The council thanked to all that have donated.
