Nick Larkin reports on the offers of help and donations made to assist the Isle of Wight Bus & Coach Museum get back to normal following flooding

A museum’s struggle to get back to normal after severe flooding has attracted massive public support. A JustGiving page raised £4,000 for the Isle of Wight Bus & Coach Museum in seven days.

“People have been generous and kind. We are gratified by the support we have received,” said museum secretary Jonathan Lamb. “We’ve even had people coming into the museum asking how they could help. There has been a lot of emotion. People love the place.” Local organisations had also helped and offered support.

The cost of damage caused after the flooding, which happened overnight on 24-25 October, is expected to be more than £5,000.
