Flood Recovery Appeal to close

20 April 2016

Foundation Scotland’s Flood Recovery Appeal will close for applications on May 27th. Individual households and community groups seeking to apply for funding should submit their application by the 4pm deadline.

The Appeal was launched in January as a response to the unprecedented rainfall caused by Storms Desmond, Eve and Franks. Since then the Appeal has raised over £675K thanks to the support of the public, Foundation Scotland’s individual and corporate clients, Aberdeenshire Council, Scottish Government, Players of the People’s Postcode Lottery and Comic Relief.

Giles Ruck CEO said, “As the only community Foundation in Scotland we took the decision that we had a key role to play in supporting communities most affected by the flooding. I would like to thank everyone who has donated and helped raise this magnificent sum, which has gone a long way to relieving the financial hardship and distress for the many individuals and community organisations severely affected by the flooding.

Our team has ensured the money has reached those most in need distributing 296 grants to households and community groups to-date.

With funds steadily reducing due to the number of applications, we have taken the decision to close the Appeal on the 27th May. I would urge anyone who lives in a flood affected area in Scotland and has not yet applied to complete the simple online application form before the 4pm deadline on 27th May.”
