The Lakes appeal
Help us restore the Lake District following the destruction caused by Storm Desmond. With your support we can make it stronger against future storms
How the appeal adds up
- Storm Desmond wreaked havoc across the Lakes in December 2015
- A record-breaking 300mm of rain fell in little over 24 hours
- Help us reach our £500k target to finish repairs
" I live in the area, and can remember hearing on the news that the storm was coming our way. But nothing could have prepared me for just how much rain we would get, or the extent of the problems it would cause."
