Fans are developing a number of ways to aid stricken record shop Muse Music – and you could help.
Serious weather across the festive period caused huge flooding in the North of England, leaving homes and businesses devastated.
Muse Music is based in Hebden Bridge, one of the towns most affected by the flooding.
A much-loved institution, fans are rushing to help owners Sid and Valeen re-build. Music fan Hazel Draper has invited those fond of the shop to donate vinyl. Having a January clear out? Well this could be the place for that un-wanted black wax.
In a social media post Hazel writes: "One of the coolest shops in the known universe was hit by the floods on Boxing Day. Muse Music and Love Cafe is an independent record shop and cafe in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. They have lost everything but I have come up with a way that we can help to get them back on their feet so please share this post. Do you have any very good quality second hand (or new) vinyl that you could donate for Sid to sell?"
Email Hazel via [email protected] if you think you can help.
Elsewhere, John Hanson has set up a Crowdfunding page for fans to make donations as repair work gets underway: "We're raising £500 to Muse Music 38 market street Hebden Bridge because This Beaut shop got wrecked in a massive flood."
