Business support flood relief efforts
From coffee shops to law firms, beauty salons to high street retailers, dozens of Somerset Businesses are doing their bit to raise money for flood relief.
Between 1st March and 30th May, pubs owned by Wadworth Brewery will donate 5p for every pint of 6X sold. My Coffee Stop in Shepton Mallet will donate 10% of sales during the month of February to the Fund, and Bridgwater-based Artistic Tendancies are selling handmade plaques using recalimed materials on their ebay site.
The internationally famous, everyday footwear company Clarks has been based in the heart of Somerset since the company began, and to support the local community the Street-based company has donated £15,000 to the Somerset Flood Relief Fund. In addition to the cash donation, Clarks have provided 200 pairs of Kids Wellington Boots.
Mary Hancock, Deputy Chief Executive says, “It’s been great fun to engage with businesses large and small that are organising fundraising activities. During this flooding emergency, the support from the Somerset business community is really going a long way to helping us respond to the immediate needs of flooded households in our county and build resilient communities in the future.”
