At about 9.55pm, two days after Christmas last year, the Rankin household woke to a loud bang, what followed was a quick raging fire that engulfed their home and all of their worldly possessions.
Several months later, my best mate Adam Rankin and is beloved family are still without any kind of permanent accomodation. Adam being on a small yet sufficient wage has still been able to provide for his family, however the prospect of now having no place to call home for his two children Scarlet and Rose,, and his long term parter and recent bride Emily.
Complications with the insurance that Adam had bought has seen them thrown into chaos, as if losing your home in flames and all your possessions wasn't enough. The policy he took out did not cover the events that took place.
Knowing Adam for my entire life, he is a strong and vigilant type of guy, and will not take handouts lightly.
It is this reason that I am searching far and wide for those that could help this loving family that I know and trust, to rebuild their lives.
From the bottom of my heart I know that my mate Adam and his young family will no doubt grow from this, however without our help, it will be oh so much harder.
I sincerely thank all those in advance your donation, be it small or large. Knowing that you are helping re-build the life of a devastated family.
