Flood-Hit Millom Community Release Christmas Video

Community leaders and residents in Millom have created a Christmas video to help raise money for those affected by the recent floods

30 families are still out of their homes following freak downpours at the end of September.

Donations are still being sought for an appeal to help the 320 households affected.

Jenny Brumby from the Around the Combe community group said: "8 weeks ago many streets in Millom and Haverigg flooded due to heavy rain fall and inadequate drains in our town.

"Over 320 properties were affected, over 1000 people. Over 30 familes still out of their homes. 

"We have been trying to raise money to help everyone affected. We hoped to access the governments flood resilience grants, we were told not enough houses were affected. 

"So rather than sit back and wallow we thought we would create a fun Christmas video and also bring some Christmas joy to our town. It took 30 minutes on a wet cold afternoon and most of the people in the video had been affected by the floods. 

"Please help those affected by donating to our just giving page or contact Millom Town Council."
