Morrisons donates 100,000 to help flood hit communities

Monday January 4th 2016

Morrisons has offered 100,000 to groups helping people affected by the floods in the north of England and Scotland.

The funds are being given to flood appeals in Greater Manchester, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Scotland and Cumbria to spend on clean-up costs, emergency repairs and emergency supplies of clothing and food and drink.

David Potts, Morrisons chief executive, said: “We have seen the terrible impact that the floods have had on communities that we serve and we want to do our bit to help. This money will help to start the clean-up process which will be a huge challenge over the coming days and weeks.”

The supermarket has already given food and other emergency supplies to crisis centres and store staff have been supporting the clean-up by running collections and operating donating stations. In addition, store cafés have been used to provide free meals for displaced families.
