Llan chamber donates to Ruthin flood victims


* Flood-hit houses in Ruthin.
Llangollen Chamber of Trade and Tourism is making a £200 donation to the Mayor of Ruthin’s appeal for the town’s flood-hit families.
At their meeting at the Hand Hotel on Monday night, chamber members were told by the chair John Palmer: “I suggest we donate £200 to the appeal. I believe it would be a nice act of solidarity for those poor people affected by the flooding.”
Members agreed to go ahead with the donation.
+ Denbighshire County Council has received requests from members of the public on where they can leave financial donations following last week's flooding.

The council is reminding people that they can make a donation to the Ruthin Mayor's Appeal Fund or the St Asaph Mayor's Flood Relief Fund.

To donate to the St Asaph Mayor's Flood Relief Fund, make cheques payable to: “The Mayor's Charity Account" and cheques can be dropped off at the Cathedral Diocesan Office in St Asaph.

To donate to the Ruthin Mayor's Fund, make cheques payable to “Cyngor Tref Rhuthun” or “Ruthin Town Council”. The account number is 20788929, sort code: 202576 and money can be deposited at Barclays Bank on St Peter's Square, Ruthin.

Councillor David Smith, Cabinet Lead Member for Environment, said: "We have been overwhelmed by people's generosity and it's humbling to see communities pull together at a time when co-operation is needed the most.

"Receiving and distributing goods as a result of all this goodwill has become un-coordinated and we don't want to be in a position where goods don't get to people quickly. That is why we are now calling on people to donate financially instead.

"The council is extremely grateful for this co-operation."
