The Aftermath of Storm Dennis: Community Appeals
Storm Dennis hit UK, and South Wales especially, hard over the weekend, the second storm in a fortnight (with another forecast to be on its way!). Many parts of the country have been left ravaged by flood water and with damage caused by high winds.
Firstly, we want to extend our thoughts to those affected by this. Secondly, to those in our community who are willing and able to help, we have compiled a list of appeals from communities around Wales who are now in the process of rebuilding and restoring in the aftermath of the storm. Likewise, we have started a list of 'offers of help' below.
Please see information below*, assorted by location, please follow the links to respond to each directly.
If you know of any other appeals or offers of help please let us know and we will add in to the list.
Diolch yn fawr iawn...
