A campaign has been launched to raise cash for natural flood defences to protect a Yorkshire village.
Crowdsourcing website The Community Fund is seeking £5,000 for a project to direct excess river water away from Brompton village in Northallerton.
Brompton has suffered regular flooding from the Brompton Beck with water more than 1.4m deep affecting homes in 2012.
The Brompton Flood Prevention Group wants to install woody debris, leaky dams, online and offline ponds, and small earth bunds in and around tributaries of the Brompton Beck.
The Community Fund founder Nicole Shamier said: “This is a plea to anyone who can empathise with the effects of flooding.
“As we enter winter and the Environment Agency’s flood warnings become more frequent, it is absolutely imperative that we help those at risk feel safer and more secure. We know that many people already donate to charity; but we are asking that this month, your donation is pledged to Brompton.”
