Cumbria Floods Collection

In Cockermouth the clean-up operation is underway, though it is likely to be many months before the church can be used again, and longer until some people can return home. Last weekend the Cathedral parish held a collection for those affected, and raised around £1200; a similar collection is being held around the Diocese this weekend, at the Bishop's request, and the Cathedral fund will remain open until Tuesday.

These images are from the Cockermouth parish webpages, hosted on the site of the parish of Our Lady of the Lakes and St Charles, Keswick, which has also suffered from some flood damage. You can find the Keswick pages here and the Cockermouth pages, including some more images and details of current arrangements for Mass, here.
