Millbrook Floods Help - Thank You!!

UPDATED 7pm Monday 3rd december, 2012

Many thanks to each & every person who kindly donated to the Millbrook Flood Help with monies raised going to Millbrook Village Hall Playgroup that is currently in a temporary home at the Scout Hut. A total of 19 people donated the sum of £190 via PayPal, minus the PayPal fees of 5.4% (£10.26) giving a total sum of £179.74. Although we spoke with PayPal directly again today, they will not remove or reduce their fees unless we are a registered charity which of course, we aren't. However, as soon as we found this out earlier in the week we also made the decision to donate our fees from any photos used in the media to make up for this. We are extremely grateful for your support!!

Final Total Donations £284.74

Thank you all & we hope to bring you photos of where the cash helped soon!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has sent mails of support & donations to those affected in the Millbrook flooding on Saturday night. From launching the PayPal Donation page last night you have raised more than £100 & we hope to raise a little more in the 6 days remaining. With your help we can contribute, even if only a little, toward the fund.

The PayPal Donations will run until 6pm Sunday 2nd December & we will issue a press release of the grand total raised at 7pm & throughout the week you will see updates via the Millbrook Flood Help Facebook Group.

After attending a drop-in session at Millbrook Scout Hut for Multi-Agency Flood Recovery this evening we bring you the following photos taken across the last 48 hours. This was from just one affected area don't forget & we hope that others across the South West are getting the full support required to enable a return back to some sort of normality as swift as possible.

This blog will return back to normality next week when we bring you a feature on one of the Palmerston Forts. Until then we thank you for your understanding, both our cameras took on water damage so we won't be doing photos for a few days anyway!
