Tragedy struck the Lawrence family just a week out from Christmas, on the 17th of December at 3am. This Dalby family of 10 saw their family home burn to the ground. They lost everything except the clothes they had on. Luckily the initial support from the community has been great and they have been able to get through the first steps of recovery since the fire.
To ensure ongoing support for this family, Western Downs Outreach Project Inc are currently organising a raffle that will take place throughout January to help with the return of their children to school and starting off their rebuilding process.
“We are looking for the business community of the region to pitch in through the donation of any goods of value to the raffle, and if they would like to, sell tickets once it has started,” said spokesman Jason Vella. “The raffle will commence on the 12th of January and be drawn publicly on Sunday 8th of February.”
If your business is able to help please contact Jason at Western Downs Outreach Project on 0490 375 562 on or before Friday 9th of January.
