A relief fund in South Yorkshire has topped the £1m mark, 100 days after the county was hit by devastating floods.
The floods affected residents in both urban and rural locations
The fund was set up by the South Yorkshire Community Foundation to help thousands of flood victims in Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield.
Chief executive Pauline Grice said: "When the fund was set up I set a target of £500,000 and a lot of people thought that was extremely optimistic.
"The fund is now just over £1m. It is wonderful, beyond our wildest dreams."
She said the money was already being distributed among individuals and families to help alleviate hardship in the aftermath of the floods.
"It's gone to the areas that were in the news - Catcliffe, Toll Bar, Bentley - but also the ones that haven't been in the news in Thorpe Hesley, Whiston, other parts of Rotherham and parts of Sheffield such as Abbeydale Road.
"There have been pockets of people flooded and this money is going to them.
"I knew deep in my heart that the people of South Yorkshire wouldn't let the people of South Yorkshire down."
