If you didnít see the news at the weekend, a young familyís home in Christie Downs was completely gutted after some tosser had set fire to an old mattress by their house. Thankfully they all survived with the exception of the family cat, they have lost everything they did own Ė I really feel for the poor sods. They didn't appear to be a well off family and have 3 young kids and a baby, all currently living with granny. We have just purchased a new bed for our daughter and was about to ditch the old one even though there is nothing actually wrong it but thought this poor family might really appreciate it, even though a small guesture.
I have contacted the MFS and the family will accpt donations if possible but dont feel comfortable asking, so if you have any old bits of furniture or household items you think might come in handy for this poor family let me know so I can pass it on to them Ė if transport is an issue, I can collect and drop off.
They have been allocated a new home from next week so are desperate.
