Help support Katie Thompson

Our beautiful Tim died after a horrific shark attack at Shelley's beach, just north of Coffs Harbour, on Father's Day. Leaving behind his devastated family and pregnant wife, Katie.

Tim was the most kind, generous and lovable man who loved the ocean and surfing but most of all his family. Tim married the love of his life in March this year (after COVID postponed their wedding planned for 2020) and they were looking forward to the arrival of their first baby in January 2022. Tim and Katie moved 'home' to Woolgoolga in 2018 buying their first home with dreams of raising a family by the beach with grandparents and extended family close by. 

We are all so devastated that such a tragedy could happen to this beautiful family who had everything to look forward to. Please help us support Katie and Tim's family through this tragic time.

Please help us by supporting Katie and Tim's family with the cost of funeral arrangements as well helping Katie prepare for the arrival of their baby and living costs.
