Urgent assistance needed to support family with two sons 6, and 11, plus pregnant woman, losing every possession in house fire - electrical

Main image

This family have just lost their life's possessions in a devastating fire that took place on the afternoon of Friday 8 February. The family were home in the garden when the fire broke out suddenly in the garage due to an electrical fault. Five fire engines and twenty firefighters were called to the scene and thankfully there was no loss of life.

Living in the home were a family including two sons aged 6 and 11, and additionally a friend boarding with them due to have her baby in only a couple of months time. They have all lost everything, and were renting, with no contents insurance. They also urgently need to find a new place to live, and a car.

This page is set up to assist this group of people with a houseful of life's necessities, their precious items cannot be replaced. Please help rebuild their lives, particularly for the sake of the young children, and the new baby due to arrive.

Thank you so much Lynfield community, and supporters of the Catford's.

I am just a local who was passing by the morning after the fire. To see this family sitting on their property with their heads in their hands not knowing what to do next, said it all. I'm a renter, I don't have contents insurance, this could have happened to me, so I would like to help them.
