The Gloucestershire flood relief fund, which was formed a little over a week ago to help victims of the July 2007 floods in Gloucestershire, has launched a fund raising website at

People can now make online card payments to the charity. Another key aspect of the site is to act as a focus for fundraising activities to help raise more money for the fund. Already a number of fundraising activities have planned and more are in the pipeline. Concerts, charity dinners and bucket collections have already been confirmed and the Mayor of Gloucester will also be leading a sponsored walk from Walham Sub-station (Gloucester) to the Mythe Treatment Works (Tewkesbury).

As the total of money raised so far was announced as £569,275.88 Cllr Harjit Gill, Mayor of Gloucester and chairman of trustees of the fund, added:

The floods brought out the best in the people of the county. Community spirit was tremendous. So far we’ve had great responses from businesses and the public and we hope that the proposed fundraising events and the ability to donate money online, by card, will raise even more money.

This weekend firefighters from Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service will be out on the streets of Gloucester collecting money in buckets. A full list of up to date events is available at
