    Hi Janet,

    please let me know if we can donate household items, clothing etc. I know the family involved but we live in Cambridge. I am happy to ship anything down that I can to help out.

      Hi there. Thanks so much for your offer of help. Here's a facebook post which gives details about what's needed right now and an address:

      Hello wonderful community. I am organising immediate essentials for the family effected by this morning's fire. I will prepare a 'care package' today with appropriate donations. I have some nice toiletries already covered but other ways you could help: * Women's clothes around size 10 *women's shoes possibly around a 38 *women's shoes size 41 *Men's medium clothes *3-4 year-old girl's/unisex clothes *paw patrol toys (as a non-essential pick-me-up) *children's picture books *vegetarian meals *an old tablet/ipad might also be useful *children's snack food PLEASE NOTE: I don't want the family to be swamped by stuff they are unlikely to use/wear and they have no storage at this stage. If you know the family, you'll know they dress pretty stylish, so I'm trying to be in-keeping with what's comfortable/normal for them, so please only good quality donations. There will be other ways to help coming soon i.e. give-a-little page underway, and once they have found a new place to live they will need household items. All donations can be dropped to me at 24 Te Miti St (leave by the front door if I'm not home). Ngā mihi.
