Customers at a Cromer supermarket will be able to donate money to the EDP Norfolk and Lowestoft floods appeal.
Budgens has set up a bucket collection and is selling second hand books for people and places affected by the high tide on Thursday night.
Store manager Julie Lynch said: “I went to see the pier and the promenade in Cromer yesterday and was devastated about how it looked. I thought I had to do something. I have lived in Cromer a long time and I have not seen anything like that before. If every business owner put a bucket on their counters it would raise a lot of money.”
The collection only started this lunchtime (Monday) and within two hours about £40 had been raised.
“I think people will be generous. It is for our community,” Mrs Lynch added.
Customer Lester Shaw, from Sheringham, said: “It is for a very good cause. There has been a lot of damage all along the coast.”
