Raising money to help a friend who lost his home when his boat exploded.


Hey guys,

Some of you may have seen in the news our family friend and Herald Island local Mike Lawler's boat blew up from an LPG leak just off Herald Island. He suffered serious burns and is now recovering from this horrific ordeal. This was Mike's home and without it he has been left with nothing.

Unfortunatley he isn't insured and is now looking at an estimate of $10000 just to remove the boat from the seabed so it doesn't drift and do further damage.

On top of a long road to recovery and finding somewhere to live, he doesn't need the stress of trying to pay for the Bill's headed his way. Any money raised would be a greatly appreciated in help him as he isn't in a financial position to pay these huge costs :(

Thanks in advance!
