Donation website set up to support Boston flood victims


Anyone wishing to donate money to the victims of last week’s flood in Boston can do so on a new website.

Mark Douglass, one of the team behind the Get Boston Back On Its Feet Facebook group, has set up a page to help co-ordinate the fundraising effort.

The page states: “All monies donated will be placed into a central pot ‘Boston Floods Appeal’. This money will be targeted towards the most at risk and need groups in the community allowing them to return to their homes.

“At this time a full estimate of the damage has not been completed but early indications are that 100’s of homes are damaged. This money will contribute towards the rebuild, rewiring of homes damaged. We’ve set the target at £5,000, but we need to raise far above this.”
