Fund for victims of the floods in Todmorden
9:00pm Wednesday 18th July 2012 in News
A FIGHTING fund to help businesses recover from the June floods will be open to shops and firms in Todmorden.
The Recovery Investment for a Stronger Economy (RISE) Fund, operated by Calderdale Council, is inviting applications from water-damaged outfits.
Several premises across the Upper Calder Valley, including Todmorden and Walsden, were severely hit by the heavy downpours.
And small to medium-sized ventures which lost stock or suffered damage are being urged to come forward.
Coun Janet Battye, deputy council leader and Todmorden councillor, said: “I know that there are many businesses out there which need a helping hand and we feel that it is up to the council to take a lead.
“These grants could make all the difference to businesses which are doing their best to bounce back.”
Firms now wanting to apply for RISE funding should contact the council’s Luke Doran on 01422 392156.
