The fund is administered by Cumbria Community Foundation, which managed the £3 million Cumbria Flood Recovery Appeal following the 2009 floods. Grants will be distributed to relieve hardship, such as helping with cleaning up, emergency repairs, clothing, food and drink, heating and heating equipment, childcare equipment and basic furniture.
