Family loses their home before Christmas!

In the middle of the night, on the 10th December 2020, Anthony Jones woke to the terrifying sound of his family screaming while their house was on fire. 

Anthony, a former firefighter, immediately rushed to the aid of his family and evacuated them all to safety. 

He then returned, scanning all the other rooms, desperately trying to find his dog. Despite numerous efforts, the smoke was too thick and he was unable to get him on time. 

15 days before Christmas, the family are now having to come to terms with the loss of their dog, all belongings and irreplaceable sentiments.. all the while tasked with finding a place to stay.

As work colleagues, we have taken it upon ourselves to set up this page in hopes of helping.

Anthony and his family have no knowledge of this campaign as we know he would be too proud to agree to such a thing. 

It’s been a challenging year for everyone and the festive period is one where available funds are at the lower end of the scale for most but, if you are in any position to make a small donation, whatever the amount, it would be greatly appreciated.
