Two Ridings Community Foundation financial awards

Following the flash flooding that hit North Yorkshire this summer, Two Ridings Community Foundation made financial awards to households and small businesses affected by the floods.

Using funds from the North Yorkshire Recovery Fund, which was set up following the Boxing Day 2015 floods, Two Ridings asked anyone whose main place of residence was flooded to get in touch with us so that we could help. 

The fund helped households where water came into houses (but not where it only went into gardens or garages) and small businesses where personal hardship had arisen as a result of premises being flooded.

To date the fund has made 128 payments of £300 to people affected by the flooding, with a further 18 in the pipeline. Eleven further awards of £1000 plus have been made to help people in significant hardship, including 2 awards to small businesses. More awards will be made in the next few months - for further details read the latest press release from Two Ridings Community Foundation
