In the first few months of this year many of you will have been aware of the dreadful flooding in Somerset. Our new Practice Manager Stuart Saunders  was involved in helping the people affected by the flooding where he lives. As a result of the flooding a charity was set up called FLAG which he is involved with. He was very moved by the help they received from people all over the world.

You are also probably aware that there is terrible flooding in Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia where over 120 people have died and 1,000,000 have had to leave their homes.The situation is fairly dangerous as the flooding has removed all the notices of where landmines are and also the flooding has exposed more. The Serbian and Bosnian governments have been in contact with the FLAG charity and asked them to get involved. Stuart was impressed by the help that came from outside his community and has committed to returning the favour. He will be part of the initial wave of supporters to go out and assist. On Sunday He is flying to Serbia (Belgrade) to go and assist there as the rivers are about to break their banks. He may have to go to Bosnia but it is all a bit up in the air at the moment. The initial 3 parties (8/10 people) have free flights kindly donated by wizz air- Stuart is heading up one of the teams.

The charity still desperately needs money so we can get other volunteers out there as there will not be enough free flights or accommodation for the 2nd and 3rd  waves. When his community called for help it came and some of it from Devon- now someone else is calling for help, please help Stuart return the favour. Any donations you can make would make a real difference. if you can make a donation please contact
Thank you
