Community digs deep to help family after horror find

IN TIMES of tragedy, our community has again shown they're willing to step up and help those who need a hand.

And there could be no tragic circumstance than what three Hanna siblings face following the death of their mother, who was found in her house two weeks after she passed away.

The community has sprung into action, with a GoFundMe page setup to alleviate with some of the costs of the horrific clean-up raising more than $5000 in just two days.

Many of the donators have posted messages of support and respect for the family, with many promising ongoing support for the trio.

Some of the many comments include:

Judy Payne: "Hi Hanna & Brothers, I am so sorry to hear about your mum. My heart reaches out for you all. I am Kellianne Smith's Mum Hanna if you remember me. I hope things work out for you all . Judy Payne xox”

Scott Adams: "Sorry for your loss boys❤ will donate more on pay day.”

Cassandra Sampson: "So sorry for your loss, Katie and all that has come along with that. I hope that the community pulls together and helps you and your brothers out. Sending love x”

Amy Hall: "It breaks my heart to hear of this, I am so sorry for what you guys have to go through and I hope soon Dianne can finally come home to rest In peace x”

Virginia Regan: "Katie! My darling, I'm here for you. I'm not working so free anytime for anything at all. I'm so sorry xx”

Karen Wilkins: "It's not much but I hope it helps. A very special school friend of which I held dear xx”

The target for the GoFundMe fundraiser is set at $30,000 with donations able to be made through the link here.

Daughter Katharine stated it was the worst case scneario her and her brothers were facing in trying to restore their family house and bring her mother back for burial.

"Mine and my two brothers' resources are now drained, just placing the deposit to start this process.

"Any contribution in our time of need would be so amazingly generous and we'd be forever eternally grateful.”
