Henry has lost his dad to Cyclone Gabrielle and needs our help.

Hastings, Hawke's Bay

Last week the horrendous Cyclone Gabrielle violently took the life of Henry's dad, Brendan Miller.

Brendan, a loving father, an engineer and small cattle farmer with Helen in Crownthorpe, Hastings, was the key financial provider for their son Henry of 3 & 1/2 years of age.

While no amount of money is ever going to bring Brendan back, Henry and his mum, Helen (my youngest sister), need our help to try and rebuild their lives now.

Not only have they lost Brendan, but there is also a lot of cyclone damage to their small farm, and they have lost their livestock, their livelihood. Helen needs assistance to get her farm back into working order, which includes clearing the silt and debris, replacing fences and livestock. Plus, a bit of help to service the mortgage and put food on the table while they get back on their feet.

Much love and thanks.
