Charitable fellow Britons, it's time to put your hands in your pockets again.

Following the recent flooding in Cumbria, I started to ruminate about what folk might be able to do, to help. When natural disasters befall foreign lands, the Disasters and Emergencies Committee (DEC) usually springs promptly into action, to solicit funds. This has not happened, with regard to Cumbria.

However, when the question was asked on Radio 4's PM programme earlier this week, the Cumbria Foundation was identified as the appropriate beneficiary. See the link to their site in the entry on the PM Blog, here.

I've chipped in. I hope my British readers outside Cumbria, will, too.
