A Just Giving page has set up to support those who have been badly impacted by flooding in North Buckinghamshire.

On Wednesday, December 23, torrential rain hit parts of Buckingham, Milton Keynes, Marsh Gibbon, Lavendon, Tingewick and Leckhampstead.

The downpour saw some residents get stuck in their vehicles, whilst some were trapped indoors with large amounts of water entering several properties, causing severe damage.

So, to support those who have been affected, Dean Jones, who is the partnerships and outreach manager at the University of Buckingham, created the Just Giving page with his aim being to raise £5,000 for those in need.

Incredibly, £17,480 has been donated in just over five days, with some residents contributing £100.

An excerpt from the page read: “Buckingham experienced the worst flooding in some time.

“Residents from across the town have been affected severely.

“The impact of flooding on this scale is devastating at the best of times, but it's the last thing people need just before Christmas and at the end of a challenging year for everyone.”

Buckingham councillor, Warren Whyte, was also quick to praise the emergency services, after they were called out to several different parts of the county, to help those struggling with the floods.

On Boxing Day, he tweeted: “Thank you @Bucksfire and @FireBuckingham for all your help during the flood - your assistance and presence was a great reassurance to those in need of help on the night.”

He also confirmed that the town’s Cornwalls Meadow Car Park was now clear of water and that residents who need to shop should ‘shop local’ for essential items, as the county continues to be in Tier 4, following the new lockdown restrictions due to the pandemic.
