CN Group Donates To Flood Victims

An independent local newspaper publishing group has donated £10, 000 to help victims of flooding.


CN Group, an independent local newspaper publisher, has agreed to donate £10, 000 and free advertising in order to help those who have been affected by the recent flooding.

Free advertising is being offered to businesses that have been affected by the natural disaster.

CN Group's local radio station, The Bay, also continued to broadcast despite the building being flooded.

“I am incredibly proud of the whole Bay team. They really stepped up to the mark in providing a lifeline for listeners across The Bay. We're a bit overwhelmed with all the positive feedback and the number of messages of support we've received from listeners and also the business community." said Bill Johnson, managing director of The Bay.

The News & Star, a local daily newspaper, published a 25 page special edition. This is despite the fact that the building housing the newspaper was hit by a power cut caused by the floods.

David Helliwell, editor of the News & Star, said: “For many of our staff this was deja vu as it was the third major flood in Cumbria in the last decade. Their response was everything you would want from a team; professional and their only thought being how they could cover this fast unfolding story. For some of them to do that on virtually no sleep, while knowing their own homes were under threat showed great resilience.”
