Hundreds of pounds of gift cards have been sent to help those in Cumbria affected by the December floods.

Sparrowpit and District Women’s Institute was thanked for its generosity by Helen Hinvest, chairman of the Cumbria and Cumberland Federation.

She said: “This is extremely generous of you all and very much appreciated.”

Vouchers for Morrisons, Argos and B&Q will be distributed to the members who need it the most.

Helen said: “This is a difficult time for the federation and our members are truly grateful and extremely heartened by the overwhelming network of support .

“Just to know the other WI members are thinking about us has been a great comfort.”

She added: “I hope the floods have not reached Derbyshire as they seem to be spreading to other parts in the North, hope everyone is safe well and dry.”
