£250,000 Government match funding secured for Dales floods

We have been working since before Christmas with other agencies to make the case for match funding from the Government for the money raised in response to the Dales floods in July 20219. This followed South Yorkshire Community Foundation getting government funding for the money raised in response to the November 2019 floods. Despite a long wait, we were advised in May 2020 that our case had been heard and match funding secured.

This is a great result, as it not only allows us to continue supporting communities affected by flooding, it also recognises the local fundraising efforts. Our thanks go to partners who helped us make the case: Rishi Sunak MP, Richmondshire District Council, North Yorkshire County Council, National farmers Union & the York and North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
