To Support Jesse’s Mum Patty and Uncle Steve through the hardest of times after loosing their homes to the bush fires in Lake Conjola.

Main image

Hi All

As a lot of friends would know our mate Jesse Chinnock has spent the last week fighting fires and protecting homes in one of the worst hit places of these current Australian bush fires at Lake Conjola.

His home is thankfully still currently standing but sadly both the homes of his mother Patty and Uncle Steve (neighbours in Lake Conjola) have perished and are nothing more.

We have set up this page to directly help both Patty and Steve Chinnock through what is the saddest of times.

Patty's family home also held the majority of memories (photos, books, art) of the late Keith Chinnock who throughout the years managed both the Keith Spry Pool and Khandallah pool in the Wellington region for a number of years..

Although there are many charities and donation points for these fires we believe that with the vast number of friends that know this family,this is a great chance to directly help a great Wellington/Kiwi family going through hell across the Tasman.

Feel free to share this far and wide.

Kia Kaha to the Chinnocks

Tay Waqa's involvement (page creator)

Trav and myself have been close family friends for over 30 years and as you can imagine in such horrible times we would like to help Patty, Jesse and the family.

Use of funds

Funds will be used for immediate necessities as sadly they left with only the clothes they were wearing. We hope it will assist in rebuilding a place they can call home once more.

Latest update

Thank You!  10 January 2020

We are all overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity the Chinnock Whanau have received to have reached our initial goal of 10K to support and help the both Patty and Steve.

The page is open till the end of the month so anything above we can raise to make their lives that little bit easier will be greatly appreciated!
