Community spirit is alive and kicking out there!

Today 3 of my family members had a lucky escape from a fire that ended up destroying all their belongings. My Niece and her 2 boys (2 years and 4 months), were alerted by the smoke alarm and safely got out of the house.

Sadly their belongs were not lucky and everything they own has be destroyed from baby bottles to beds to children’s toys. My mother has now posted the news article with a request for help on Facebook to find some essential items to get them through the next days or so. Amazingly she is wading through many responses of people wanting to help and giving donations of nappies, clothes a cot, offers of everyday items. It really shows that community spirit is out there and these are just ordinary people (some with not a lot themselves) wanting to help. I am so grateful and heart-warmed at all the kindness. My mother is doing an amazing job of sorting out collection and saying thanks. Well done BRIGG and surrounding areas for being a fabulous community. I live further away and feel comforted that you are supporting my family.
