Suburban Home Studio Flood Fund

£10,085 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 548 people in 35 months
On Boxing Day the River Aire burst its banks just behind Kirkstall Road in Leeds, and along with many other buildings, homes and businesses our studio Suburban Home was completely flooded. Water levels rose to three or four feet high throughout the four rooms of the studio, along with the rest of the industrial unit it resides in.

Because of its close proximity to the river, the building and contents have never been able to be insured for flood damage, and as such it will now require thousands and thousands of pounds to gut, dry, clean and replace everything inside.

Fortunately the flooding was anticipated by a couple of hours and the work of a few incredible people managed to get almost all of the expensive studio equipment and gear up into the attic (or at least up high), but we do already know that at least a couple of guitar amps and some drum hardware have been destroyed by the water. As such, any money raised by this will likely be going towards replacing/repairing damaged flooring, carpets, furniture, cabling, doors, electrics, and building new bass traps (which were used as makeshift sand bags), as well as redecorating and having the studio professionally dried and dehumidified.

It makes us incredibly uncomfortable creating something like this fundraiser page, but a lot of very kind people have expressed an interest in donating money to the cause which we're incredibly thankful for, so anything anyone can help with would be incredibly appreciated.

The photo attached is from the corridor outside the studio to give you an idea of the destruction and the water levels. It isn't safe to turn the electricity on in the studio yet so is too dark to take photos. We'll keep you updated with any progress.

Hi I would just like to say thank you so so much to everyone that has donated money, time, expertise or anything else over the last few days. It's impossible to express how grateful I am without coming across as disingenuous, but really, thank you.

The studio has now been gutted and remaining equipment moved to storage. Now we have to wait for the building to be dried and sanitised. Once that's done the floor will be relayed, walls and electrics repaired. While I wait for that I'm cataloguing everything I still have and everything I will need to buy again to be up and running. I've set up a small mix room in my flat so I can still work on projects for the next few weeks.

Again, thank you, it means so much,
Matthew
