Supporting the Pennington-Foley family following a tragic accident.

Main image

After a tragic accident in the playground, 3 year old Amberlie passed away, leaving her parents, Emma and Rob and baby brother Theo absolutely devastated.

Emma and Rob moved to New Zealand 9 years ago from the UK to set up a new life for themselves and to start a family. They left their parents and all their extended family in the UK.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the global travel restrictions, it is proving very difficult and expensive to get their family to New Zealand to support one-another during this terrible time.

We know that so many of Emma and Rob's friends and family want to help at this extremely difficult time so we have set up this page as an avenue for people to help if they are able to do so and would like to.

Emma's employer is kindly contributing towards the costs of bringing Emma and Rob's immediate family to New Zealand. However, the total costs of travel during Covid-19 are overwhelming. We are hoping to raise money to support the family with the costs of travel, quarantine and accommodation as well as holding a celebration of Amberlie's short but happy life. If there is any funds remaining, they will go towards easing the pressure on Emma and Rob financially.

Use of funds

International flights, internal flights, quarantine, accommodation for immediate family and a celebration of Amberlie's life. Any excess funds will be used by Emma and Rob to ease the financial burden on the family.

I was very sad to hear about Emberlie's death. I have a grand daughter the same age. Love to you all in coping with your grief.
