Club gives flood funds

A COMMUNITY group with first-hand experience of flooding has offered £500 to help victims elsewhere.

Morpeth Lions Club has donated the cash to the Lions Clubs of the British Isles and Ireland Disaster Fund to support flood victims in the South West, South East and Midlands.

The group was one of the leaders of the Morpeth Flood Victims’ Appeal in 2008 and at the time it received financial support from other Lions clubs across the country. Now it has reciprocated that help.
