Following the devastating flooding in Cumbria and surrounding areas, Servelec Controls has made a contribution from their community initiatives fund to the Cumbria Flood Recovery Appeal.
Storm Desmond ripped through the county in early December, leaving thousands without power and forcing many to vacate their homes. Servelec Controls works with many clients in the area, including Sellafield in Seascale.
The Appeal, set up by the Cumbria Community Foundation, has been well supported by the local supply chain including £500,000 of donations and in-kind pledges of support. Funds raised will help the community get back on its feet via grants for families experiencing financial hardship, as well as supporting voluntary organisations that are organising the relief effort.
Servelec Controls Power & Nuclear Managing Director Alex Moore commented:
“The scenes of destruction caused by Storm Desmond have been truly shocking, even more so at this time of year. We decided as a company not to send out Christmas cards this year and instead make a donation to the fund, which we have seen is already doing wonderful work. We are looking to work closely with our communities next year and this was an ideal place to start.”
The current total donated to the fund is over £3 million. Individual donations can be made through their Just Giving campaign here.
In other parts of the Servelec Group, members of staff from Servelec Healthcare, who work closely with the Cumbrian Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, recently held a bake sale in their Sheffield office, raising a further £150 for the Appeal.
