The Rotary Club of Exmouth and District has made a substantial donation to help those affected by flooding on the Somerset levels.

The group has donated £2,500 to the Somerset Community Foundation Emergency Flood Relief Fund, which is aiming to raise £150,000 for communities which have been cut off by floodwater for weeks.

Honorary secretary Courtney Richards said: “We are very charitable when a disaster happens abroad, and we think it’s now time to look closer to home and look locally.”
