Pete woke up at 1am to find their kitchen engulfed by flames, coming from the new oven that they got on the 18th December.
Fortunately Pete, Sharon and their 2 guinea pigs escaped unharmed, although Pete has today (2nd Jan) been taken to hospital by ambulance having turned blue and struggling to breathe.
Their flat has been ravaged by the fire and virtually everything destroyed. They are awaiting a report from the fire brigade but it doesn't look, judging by the photos, that much of their belongings will be salvageable.
They have been rehomed in a Travel Lodge Hotel where they will have to live for at least a month.
They don't have any family who can help them out and they have no money, no food and no home.
I know this time of year can be financially tight but even if you can spare one or a few pounds to help them out, I know that it would make a huge difference to them, as they are desperate.
Many thanks for reading this story.
