On the evening of Monday 2nd Feb the Roberts family lost everything in a horrendous house fire in Rothesay. 

I took the photo above of this happy family a few years back in their living room. That's all gone now.

Let's try and raise £500 to help them pay for essentials and get back  on their feet until insurance funding kicks in..

Any amount will help and you can donate anonymously if you want...

Thanks..

 

P.S. I couldn't find a free donations page, so unfortunately there are fees associated with this way of donating. It works out at about 7.4% of donations.. Details at the link below  http://www.gofundme.com/pricing/

Today I handed the Roberts a cheque for £3187.33, the marvellous contributions of the local and wider community. I'm happy to say the family have found comfortable rented accommodation for 6 months which will allow them to establish a normal routine for the kids and prepare for the journey ahead...

After almost 2 weeks since the disastrous fire which destroyed the Roberts' family home the fund has reached an amazing £3455. I've closed the fund and will begin the process of passing the money on to the family. After the GoFundMe costs the total donation money will be £3163.73. This fantastic and generous amount is a testament to the community spirit that we have on Bute, and hopefully it will help the family get their lives back on track. On behalf of the family I'd like to thank everyone from Bute and beyond who took part and also those who created other donation opportunities.

As I expected the people of Bute have rallied round to help the Roberts. However I never thought that it would be such a fantastic response - over 5 times more than was projected. Various other donation options are open with collections at the Post Office in Rothesay and the Bute's Oasis shop. A journalist friend of mine in Edinburgh, Sarah Ewing, has been spreading the word and she has had a fantastic response from businesses with offers of replacement household items...
On behalf of the Roberts family - Thank you all...
