Nottingham Forest Evangelos Marinakis owner sends support after Greece’s worst-ever flooding

The Greek owner has sent aid to the flooded areas

Olympiacos and Nottingham Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis has sent support to the citizens of Greece after the country experienced some of its worst ever flooding.

Parts of Greece received almost twice their annual rainfall in one night, leading to mass flooding across various regions.

Heavy rainfall thanks to storm Daniel has killed at least 10 people and the fire department have evacuated thousands from worst-hit areas of the country.

It has left plenty without power, clean water or food and without access to shelter, with some of the floodwater exceeding 2 metres in some areas.

Marinakis, who is a Greek media mogul and part of the Pireaus City council as well as being the owner of both Olympiacos and Nottingham Forest, has stepped in to help the situation.

The owner of the Greek side sent 30,000 bottles of bottled water to the port of Volos on Friday afternoon, in order to be distributed to the citizens of the city.
