Huntly Flood Appeal Bank Account Now open!

Donations for the Huntly Flood Appeal can now be lodged in the specially opened account, held at RBS, The Square, Huntly.

 

On Tuesday 1st December, Huntly Development Trust (HDT) opened a bank account to accept donations to support victims of the recent floods in Huntly. The account is with the Royal Bank of Scotland's Huntly Branch in the town square. Sort code is 832305 and the account number 00236015.

Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so in three ways:

·      By bank transfer
·      Over the counter at the bank
·      By cheque made payable to Huntly Flood Appeal and sent to:

Huntly Development Trust
Huntly Business Centre
Gordon Street
Huntly
Aberdeenshire
AB54 8FG

 The Meadows area of Huntly suffered severe flooding at the start of November when the River Deveron and the Meadow Burn burst their banks. The watercourse had to cope November's average rainfall in the course of a few hours. Homes, a residential nursing home, the caravan park and various sports facilities were among those affected.

Development manager with HDT, Donald Boyd, is delighted that the account is up and running to accept donations: "Spontaneous collections from various groups including Strathbogie Drumblade Parish Church and Deveron Arts have already raised over £500. Other groups have indicated that they are willing to support the appeal but were waiting for the account to be opened. Now that there is somewhere to hold donations we really hope that the money will come in."

HDT is holding the funds in a separate account and funds will be disbursed in due course through a steering group made up of community and Aberdeenshire Council representatives. The group is taking advice from Moray Council and the Scottish Flood Forum on how best to distribute the funds.

One of the first special events to be held to raise funds for the appeal is a Soup and Sweet lunch on Sunday 6th December in the Stewart's Hall, Huntly, organised by Strathbogie Drumblade Parish Church. The event runs from 12.00-14.00 and all are welcome.
