Help Lisa get back on her feet

Our Mum, Lisa Magnay, has lost her home and everything she owns.

On Monday, at work, Mum received the horrible news - her home, along with all of her possessions were gone.

Mum recently set up home on a trawler berthed at the Ballina marina and on Monday she received news that her home had sunk, taking everything she owns with it.

Not only does Mum need to replace all of her personal items, clothing, cookware and furniture she also faces costs in the tens of thousands of dollars to remove the boat from the marina - with no guarantee that once it is out it can be repaired and become her home again.

We're asking for help to get Mum back on her feet. She has no insurance and has literally been left with only the shirt on her back.

Any help great or small would mean the world to Mum and make this time for her a little less scary to face.

This boat was Mum's dream home and she was so happy when it became a reality. It was a place where she could fish, grow her own vegies in her container garden and have her family and friends over to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. She loved living on the water and will miss it dearly.
