John Droulers, president of BAA, said: “In light of the recent events however, we’ve decided to direct all funds raised from our March lunch to help those in our own industry who were directly affected by the devastation that these floods left in their path.

“We are also asking folk in our industry to nominate someone in need, so we can help in some way to fast-track their return to a normal life, which for some could take up to twelve months.”

The association knows of more than ten people form within the industry who lost everything they owned in the flood.
