In Memory

Steve Askin, the helicopter pilot who died fighting the Canterbury fires on Valentine's Day was an extraordinary man and a devoted father and friend. He was also an outstanding soldier and a comrade who had the readiness to sacrifice his all for anyone, without judgement or prejudice. His ultimate sacrifice is only a part of a life filled with heroic actions, selfless dedication and extraordinary commitment to the betterment of us all. His family needs our support now! There is little we can do to ease the pain, but we can preserve his legacy and help secure a tiny bit of peace for his beloved family. All for One!

The intent of this fundraiser is to help alleviate financial stress on the family, in the light of the unexpected and tragic loss of Steve.

Funds will be used for the following, and could be used for anything else the family requires at this difficult time:

-Any immediate expenses, living expenses and home repairs/maintenance etc.

-Continual support for Steve's childrens education.
