Elaine O'Brien House fire fund-raiser

In the early hours of Sat morning 26th Oct 2019, Elaine and her son Cliff awoke to an out of control fire in her Davoren Park home.



They were able to escape without harm but their house has been destroyed and they have lost most of what they had including house hold items and clothes.


Elaine has been a faithful member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church for a many decades and has dedicated herself to the youth of the church being heavily involved in Pathfinders for over 50 years.

Unfortunately, she didn't have any insurance. They money raised in this campaign will help her to get back on her feet again by replacing items she lost and also helping with the cost of the demolition of her house. It is likely her only option will be to sell her old place as land and find a rental. 

All money donated will go directly to Elaine. The target is a modest estimate of what it would cost to clear her land and replace some of her household items. Don't let the target daunt you as every donation is greatly appreciated and it will all add up and help regardless of what amount is raised.
