Highbridge transport firm delivers donations for flood-hit Cumbria

Kind-hearted residents in the Burnham-On-Sea area have donated hundreds of items for families affected by last week's Cumbrian floods.

Transport firm Jays Logistics, based in Commerce Way on the Walrow Industrial Estate, says it has been bowled over by the support of local people in the Burnham area, having started taking donations.

A spokesperson told "We are receiving donations of non-perishable essentials all the time and as soon as we have a full van-load, we are taking them to whichever area is in most need, including Keswick, Morton Manor and Carlisle."

The firm is part of the nationwide Pallet Network, which is using its 117 depots to collect emergency relief donations from around the UK and get them to flood-hit families.

MD Mark Duggan added: "Our members include over 100 of the best regional hauliers in the UK. They spend their lives transporting the essential goods we all need. We are only too happy to help the people who have lost so much in Cumbria by doing what we do well – fast, efficient shipping of the UK’s freight."

The people of Cumbria still need pet dood; canned and packaged non-perishable food; torches with batteries; candles and cleaning products.
