Taverner Fire Fund

You never expect what you hear on the news could happen to you.  For Janine and Bob Taverner their nightmare  suddenly became a reality.

After hearing a loud bang in garage Janine realized a fire had started, she grabbed her 5 year old daughter, Georgia, and ran out the side door of the house.    Moments later Bob arrived home to see his wife and daughter safe but their family home up in flames.

Sidney Fire department could see the flames from the hall. By the time they arrived and were able to contain the fire it was quickly determined that anything that wasn’t burnt was either ruined by water damage or smoke damage.   

The love that these two have for each other and to their daughter is truly amazing.

Bob is a long haul truck driver and Janine is a stay at home mom and runs her own business, Rustic Tavern Illustrations.   

This go fund me page has been set up to help get this wonderful family start from scratch, cover any wage loss and ensure Christmas can be celebrated.

Please if you are unable to donate, share, share share so we can get the word out.

We will be updating this as much as possible with any and all updates we can.
