Hallam FM helps flood victims

The leaders of the four South Yorkshire Authorities – Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield have joined forces with Hallam FM's Big John at Breakfast to launch the South Yorkshire Flood Victim Support Appeal, with the aim of helping those hit by severe flooding this week.

In a joint statement, Barnsley's Cllr Steve Houghton, Mayor of Doncaster Martin Winter, Rotherham's Cllr Roger Stone and Cllr Jan Wilson of Sheffield said: "Thousands of our residents across South Yorkshire have suffered the upset, and in some cases, the tragedy of severe flooding. We hope that people from South Yorkshire and beyond realise the financial and emotional pain that many victims are enduring and find a way to help."

Big John, the host of Hallam FM's breakfast show, added: "Since Monday we've not only been providing vital information to help our listeners cope with road closures, school closures and evacuations, but have also been blown away by heart-felt messages from the public and local businesses. So many people have already pledged to help out in any way they can – and we're now proud to present the best opportunity."

Donations can be made at any Yorkshire Bank branch or via post to any of the four South Yorkshire Council offices. Cheques should be made payable to "South Yorkshire Flood Victim Support Appeal".
