transport firm delivers donations for flood-hit Cumbria
residents in the Burnham-On-Sea area have donated hundreds of
items for families affected by last week's Cumbrian floods.
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.
spokesperson told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "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."
firm is inviting anyone who would like to donate non-perishable
items to call in at its HQ in Highbridge.
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.
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 UKs freight."
people of Cumbria still need pet dood; canned and packaged non-perishable
food; torches with batteries; candles and cleaning products.
