Family Support Tragedy In Memory

Steve Askin died tragically in a helicopter crash while fighting fires in Christchurch on 14 February 2017.

Steve was a family man, ex SAS member and a Kiwi hero. Naturally his family is devastated. Steve was a devoted family man. He has left behind his wife Elizabeth Askin and two beautiful young children Isabelle and Bowie.

The burden of how to support his family now lies with Elizabeth and Steve's families. If you are thinking "is there something I can do to help?" please contribute to the family's future in this time of need. Thank you for your support. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family at this time.
