Tathra Fire - Replace Mike's Tools

Mike Wood's house and shed burnt down in the recent Tathra fires. Mike is a recently retired solar electrician who had a shed full of tools and equipment. The house was insured, but the tools were not. Now a pensioner, Mike loved to use the tools he had built up over his working life to build and create. A tradie losing their tools is like losing a part of themselves. Mike built the house that was destroyed and it was much loved by family and friends. Now Mike can't even rebuild the home he lost. So as a small gesture to help a good bloke who has lost most of his worldly possessions, his house and his home, we're asking you to help Mike get his tools back. The estimated value of the contents of Mike's shed was $30,000, but even recovering part of that would help a great deal. Can you help Mike?

Note: All donations will be withdrawn to a personal account managed by Jock (Mike's daughter Apanie's partner) and will be directly transferred to Mike within 30 days.
