Bailiff's Storm Fund Open For Applications

Slingshot Films

People whose properties were damaged by Storm Ciarán can apply for money from the Bailiff's fund.

Donations from the community will be used to help cover moving expenses, storage costs and replacing essentials such as clothes and white goods.

Sir Tim Le Cocq opened the public appeal in the aftermath of the storm which hit the island on 2 November, bringing hurricane force winds that brought down hundreds of trees and ripped roofs from buildings.

Further destruction was caused by a tornado that hit eastern parishes and which experts say was the worst to hit the British Isles in 70 years.

180 people were forced from their homes.

The Bailiff says the money that has been raised will be directed at families and individuals who have been displaced and suffered hardship and who need short term aid to help them though difficulty.

Applications are open until 7 December on the Jersey Community Foundation website.

They will be reviewed by a panel made up of the Bailiff, Home Affairs Minister Deputy Helen Miles and St Clement Constable Marcus Troy.

The fund will not cover items covered by insurance, and not normally consider fences, tree-felling, sheds or outdoor furniture.

If enough money is available, there might be another round of grants in the new year.

Donations are still being accepted to the appeal;
