Nestlé Support for the York Disaster Fund


The Archbishop of York today welcomed the support given by Nestlé to the York Disaster Fund.

He said:

'After all the grim experiences which York residents have had to cope with during and following our recent flood, it is tremendous encouragement to hear that our city's historic chocolate industry is once again leading the way in local philanthropy with a £100k donation to the York Disaster Fund 2015 Flood Appeal. The need is very great - I am sure Nestlé's lead will urge others to follow.'

Anyone needing to apply to the fund should get in touch with City of York Council on 01904 551550. For advice and support on the York floods visit
