Noah’s Ark Rescue in Tarleton require help after the Boxing Day floods.

Julie Tatler said: “Fortunately the water seems to be draining away, we have had a break in the rainfall long enough for levels to drop.

One of our biggest concerns is the drain next to the garden room, which earlier today looked like a mini geyser!! We have a lot of donated goods in there, ready to put in the cat extension when it’s done, so praying the rain eases off.

We can no longer use one of our pens but fortunately the two cats that were in there are now in the lounge, dry and cosy.

Looking at all the dreadful pictures today I guess we could be a hell of a lot worse.

Thank you for all the offers of help and yet again thank you for being a huge support. Will keep you posted.”
