Please help my Uncle Malcolm Taylor after losing his house and all his possessions in a devastating fire.

Malcolm lost his home and all his belongings in a swift fire that completely engulfed his house near Middlemarch yesterday.

Malcolm has had a traumatic year already, having lost his wife of 30 years to cancer only a few months ago and he was looking forward to a trip to Australia to visit children and grandchildren on Friday, but has had to postpone his travel plans so he can work through the insurance process, and only has house insurance, not contents.

He is currently staying with a neighbour but will need a place to rent for him and his dogs in the short term and a chance to build up furniture, clothes and household goods to start again.

Malcolm is a humble and self-reliant man who has battled through a difficult year, grieving the loss of his wife and has now lost all his photos, memorabilia and treasured items to the fire.

Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Please help Malcolm get back on his feet after this event.

Attached is a news story from today's Otago Daily Times:
