HELP: Northgate donate vehicle to victims
Northgate Vehicle Hire’s Egham branch have donated a free-of-charge vehicle to help support devastated flood damage victims across Surrey.
The vehicle has been donated to the Egham, Hythe and Pooley Green Flood Relief charity in support of residents currently stranded in their homes due to floodwater.
It is being used to transport much-needed food and supplies for local residents choosing to remain in their homes as an alternative to evacuation.
Donna Shields, Hire Desk Manager at Northgate’s Egham Branch, said: “The floods have brought much devastation to the local area and we were keen to show our support to the community in some way.
“The Egham, Hythe and Pooley Green Flood Relief charity is delivering a vital resource to our community during this distressing time; we were more than willing to help them provide the much-needed food and supplies our local community needs.”
Lisa Mitschka, Egham, Hythe and Pooley Green Flood Relief Volunteer, added: “The local area needs all the support it can get at the moment; we’re calling on other businesses to help us combat the floods and support our community where possible.
“A big thanks to Northgate for its donation, the vehicle will be a huge help in our mission to support those living in flood damaged homes within the area.”
