On December 5th 2013, a tidal surge caused Barrow Haven, on the south bank of the river Humber, to flood. Its community was hit very hard, the devastation meant they were evacuated and unable to return to their homes. They were forced to spend Christmas elsewhere and many of them lost Christmas presents they had put beneath their trees for their loved ones. Despite their best efforts, the river destroyed everything these people owned and they have been told they will not be able to return to their homes for at least another 6 months. Having seen, first-hand, the effects of the flood I can tell you the scenes of the aftermath are heartbreaking. Something needs to be done to help these poor people.

The Barrow Haven Fundraiser Event has been organised by The Rotary Club Of Barrow Meridian and its associates to raise some much needed money to help those who have fallen victim to the weather. 

On Friday 28th February 2014 there will be a very special event at the fabulous New Queens Club, Queen Street, Barton-upon-Humber, DN18 5QP.

All the musicians involved have volunteered their time and their own original music to help this cause. 
A CD called 'An Appealing Compilation' featuring 20 tracks donated by some of the finest musicians the north of England has to offer, will be available at the event or as a download from Bandcamp (CLICK HERE!). 20 tracks of outstanding music for just £3!
