KIND-HEARTED members of the public have been making donations to help those affected by the floods.

Denbighshire County Council has been inundated with donations of food, clothes and money.

As a result, it is now asking people not to drop off any more goods, but to consider making a financial donation instead.

"We have been overwhelmed by people's generosity and it's humbling to see communities pull together at a time when co-operation is needed the most,” said
Cllr David Smith, cabinet lead member for environment.

Mayor of St Asaph, John Roberts said: “Whilst it’s impossible to quantify the amount of money that may be needed after the floods, every penny will be gratefully received and spent wisely to support the whole community.

“Money raised will only be spent on supporting people who have suffered because of these terrible floods.”

Thousands of people have also signed up to the Facebook group set up to show solidarity and offer practical help.

The group was set up by St Asaph resident Mark Young whose home on Rose Hill escaped the devastation.

"Out of this devastation, there have come some really positive things too. The response to this catastrophe has been absolutely brilliant,” he said.

"In a community like, when needs must, people show a wartime spirit and pull together.”

To make a cash donation towards the Ruthin floods, use the local Barclays Bank on St Peter's Square quoting: Sort Code: 20.25.76 and Account No: 20788929.

Cheques can be made payable to 'Cyngor Tref Rhuthun ' or 'Ruthin Town Council'.

To donate to the St Asaph Mayor's Flood Relief Fund, make cheques payable to: 'The Mayor's Charity Account’. Cheques can be dropped off at the cathedral Diocesan Office, St Asaph.
