Help rebuild a pottery workshop, studio and home

Please help Steve Harrison and Janine King, our two friends and teachers, to rebuild their pottery workshop. After working tirelessly these last weeks to protect their beloved property, they have unfortunately lost both their pottery workshop and studio to the bush fires that have ravaged the village of Balmoral. Luckily, they managed to save the house, but any donation you make will help them rebuild the space they use for their livelihood and where we have spent so many special times creating and sharing with them.

Who we are:
Claudia and I (Rochelle) set this find up to help Steve and Janine who are our ceramic teachers and friends.

Where funds will go and how they will be accessed:
Funds will go towards rebuilding the studio, workshop and wood shed, replacing the solar panel system, employing tradesmen, replacing pottery equipment and materials, re-establishing the garden and orchard and helping with lost earnings.

Steve and Janine will have direct access to the funds by linking their bank account to the fund, and will be able to withdraw as they need it to pay for the above.
