YOUR LETTERS: Ex-Spaldonian devastated to hear flooding news in Germany

England – my dearly loved second homeland.

I was devastated to hear that Hebden Bridge, the town twinned with Warstein in Germany, had been badly flooded.

In 2008, my home was flooded. Since then, I wake in the night whenever I hear heavy rain against my window.

I would so much like to go to Hebden Bridge and offer my help, but fear I would only be in the way.

I would therefore like to call on the goodwill of your readers to pledge money to help the victims of the floods.
