NEW FERRY EXPLOSION

£2,626 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 186 people in 29 days
Paula Lorraine Upton-roberts  Wirral, ENG
Following the huge explosion which ripped through New Ferry on Saturday 25th March, the affected families, children and animals of New Ferry still really need your help.

The explosion, centred at the corner of our busy shopping district and within a residential area of historic Port Sunlight, caused serious injuries to people and pets, and widescale destruction and damage to properties even more than a mile away. The explosion was so massive and so fierce, that it destroyed all of the immediate buildings and caused major structural damage over a vast area. Many of those buildings were people’s homes right next to the blast site, homes which included small children and family pets. Most of those made homeless by the blast are still living in temporary accommodation such as on family sofas, in hostels and in B&B facilities and the like. Nothing permanent has yet been found. Most of these places don’t allow animals, and so almost all of the displaced family pets who have been recovered are being cared for by volunteers.

 There is hope that long term support will come from central and local government for regeneration of the area, but in the meantime, there are still so many people and animals who need your help, and every penny counts.

It buys second-hand toasters and full-sized kettles for those families having to live in B&B with only take-aways & travel kettles to provide food & nourishment. It buys food for the scared and helpless pets - animals that bolted from fright at the time, some of whom are still running stray from fear (we are putting food out for all of them). It buys furniture and fridges for those who have had to move back into empty almost derelict homes, for whom their landlords may have provided no insurance for their personal belongings, yet still charge rent.

We can’t stress enough how every penny counts. Your donations will go directly toward helping people and animals who really are in need of immediate help. So please, even if it’s only a pound, please donate now as every penny counts, and every penny is appreciated beyond words by those who receive it. This was such a random event, it could have been any of us who found ourselves in exactly this situation…. these dire circumstances faced by these families and these beloved family pets.

We thank you so much for your help, Paula xxx

Good evening everyone. Im asking you all to help me in reaching at least 3k of my 5k, maybe i was a little ambitious. Really cannot thank you people enough for all the help support, and donations, but having liased and still liasing with these families first hand who have no homes to go to, or a place to call home needing simple things we take for granted like kettle for their hotel room as they only have a travel one and there is 5 of them in the family, so they can have a cuppa together, or another family who with children who are living in a box bedroom all 3 of them, and her partner staying in Chester, or another lady crying on my shoulder at 70 plus years of age as she doest no where to turn for help, and her insurance company being as difficult as possible telling her they cannot pay for a premier inn forever. Im begging you with cap in hand can we all just give this fund 1 last push, lets try and help these people have some comfort through this heart breaking time we are all dealing with directly and indirectly. please share and tag and donate if you can.
Thank you paula
