Morrisons is to give £100,000 to groups helping families affected by the floods in the north of England and Scotland.
The funds are being donated by the supermarket chain 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.
Morrisons chief executive David Potts 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.”
Morrisons has already given food and other emergency supplies to crisis centres, and store colleagues have been supporting the clean-up by running collections and operating donating stations. Store cafés have also been used to provide free meals for displaced families.
