Ard Rock - Swaledale Floods Community Fund Raising
2 August 2019 | By billy1979
Flash flooding in the Swaledale valley has flooded homes, destroyed infrastructure, and submerged the Ard Rock site on July 30th 2019. The 2019 event is cancelled, but now is the time to really come together.
Everyone in the area is lending a helping hand. You can help us support those affected by donating to this cause.
The damage to the local area is unprecedented. Homes are destroyed, livestock and pets swept away in the destructive waters. We’re thankful and lucky that we no human lives were lost. The emergency response was immense - fire services, mountain rescue, police, and well equipped farmers and local heroes immediately attended to those trapped and in severe danger.
The mountain bike community is buzzing with offers of support and assistance for those who need it most - local residents and the community. We are asking for your help. Your contributions will make a huge difference to the area. The floods are slowly subsiding, but leaving behind a trail of destruction. We need your help to turn this around.
We ask you to join us, stand together, spread the word and raise as much money as possible to show the world how much we care for the areas we love and enjoy.
Every penny raised will go into a community fund to support those most affected. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
Please help us share this news!
The full money from this account will be passed over to the Reeth Community Centre so that it can be distributed to those who need it most.
Ard Rock is refunding 100% of participant entry fees - we really hope you can donate some of that amount to this cause. We need your help to support the community affected by devastating flooding. All of your donations will go directly to those affected.
