A support group helping businesses in Greater Manchester affected by floods has received an additional £5,000 from NatWest Bank.
The bank is donating a total of £25,000 to five charities that are leading efforts to support businesses affected by the devastating floods. The Greater Manchester Flood Recovery Appeal is one of the five groups to receive a donation.
NatWest has also been supporting customers and businesses across Greater Manchester through volunteer work and fundraising.
This will come as great news to business owners in places such as Salford, who saw their worst floods in 70 years due to the extreme weather conditions over the end-of-year festive period.
Additionally, the money donated has also been released to the local authorities in Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Wigan and Rochdale.
Richard Topliss, Chairman of the North Region Board for RBS (the parent organisation group for Natwest Bank) said, “We are delighted to support the Greater Manchester Flood Recovery Appeal in its efforts to help and aid those impacted by the floods. And I thank all our staff who have dedicated their time to those in need”.
The Greater Manchester Flood Recovery Appeal has remained opened for further donations to help them achieve their target of £50,000 at: www.forevermanchester.com.
