Surrey Flood Recovery Appeal
The Community Foundation for Surrey has launched a Surrey Flood Recovery Appeal to help local people and communities recover from the devastating floods.
The funding raised through the Surrey Flood Recovery Appeal is being used to support community and voluntary groups in the recovery effort over the coming weeks and months.
Priority will be given to established voluntary organisations providing support to flood effected communties.
Grants are available to community and voluntary groups operating in those areas of the county affected by the flooding.
