Operation: Wordsworth – Keswick, Cumbria

Under the name Operation Wordsworth, Team Rubicon has been working closely with all those who are involved in the clean-up and ongoing community activities following the flooding caused by Storm Desmond.

Dougie Clark, who ran incident command in Keswick, said “Our aim is to do all we can for the affected community; our particular skills are assessment, spontaneous volunteer management, and any number of manual tasks – the dirtier the better! It is an incredibly tough time for the people of Cumbria and we will do anything we can to try and make their lives easier.”

Partnering with Serve On, Walking with the Wounded and other voluntary organisations, over 40 Team Rubicon volunteers deployed aiming to reach those most in need in Keswick and surrounding areas of Cumbria.
