House Fire-Family left with nothing

Raised by 25 people in 6 months
On Tuesday 23rd October 2018 at around 4:30 p.m. a close friend of mine's house was subject to a significant house fire in Gloucester.This fire has completely destroyed the house, with the building suffering 70 percent damage to the ground floor and 50 percent damage to its first floor.

While her and her three sons escaped unharmed, they have lost everything in the fire. All of their birth certificates, photographs and possessions and now have only the clothes on their back. They are now effectively homeless and having to stay in temporary accommodation as the house is uninhabitable. 

My friend has lived in this property for over 35 years, and the house holds many memories. She cares little about material things, but due to personal circumstances and the unfortunate hand that life has dealt her, the house and its contents held significant sentimental value and she has lost things that money can never replace. 

With this in mind, I hope that we can make this terrible situation a little bit easier for her by providing her with money to get her and her sons clothes and everyday items to help them in the immediate future. I am also raising money to help furnish her home once it is safe to move back in.  They will need to furnish the home completely from scratch, from sofa's to knives and forks.  I hope we can make their loss slightly more bearable by helping them get back on their feet. After all, this could happen to anyone.

Any amount would help towards this cause and would provide them with something that they are in need of. Even if it is just enough for a pair of socks.

All donations will be very gratefully received. 

**At the moment, as they are in temporary accommodation, they don't have the space to store many clothes or furniture. As a result, at the moment we are looking mostly for monetary donations. When they are in somewhere semi-permanent, we will further ask for other donations such as clothing or home furnishings. Thank you
