AN OFFICIAL fund set up to help the victims of last week's floods has already been inundated with donations.
Rhyl mayor, councillor Andy Rutherford, launched the fund last week and money has already been donated by individuals and organisations.
He said: "The fund is going really well.
"The reaction from the town has been very good. People have been fantastic."
A collection was held at Rhyl FC on Saturday, while churches in the region held a collection and money was raised at the Christmas Pops concert on Sunday.
Those collections raised more than £1,000 while money donated directly to the account and from collection boxes has yet to be counted.
Collection boxes have been placed around the town while there will be a collection in the High Street tomorrow (Thursday) and Saturday.
Cllr Rutherford said: "People have really rallied round and the community support has been amazing.
"There have been some very vulnerable people affected.
"People have been shocked at what was left in their homes when they returned."
Official donation buckets will have the official Rhyl Town Council Crest and state the name of the fund.
They are located across the town including at Rhyl Town Hall Cash Office, Rhyl Library, Sainsbury's the Credit Union Office, Denmore Stores, Kendrick News Agents, Trellewelyn Road, Coast Coffee, Wilkinsons and The Lorne Public House.
Details of the fund are: Sort Code: 08-92-50 Acc No: 67005527.
Those donating are asked to quote 600089 when making payments and cheques can be made payable to Rhyl Mayor’s Flood Appeal.
