Demountable helps Holmes family to sleep easier

NUMEROUS businesses have stepped forward to donate their skills and resources to getting a demountable home for the Holmes family.

The demountable was delivered on Friday.

Sebastian and Kiara, whose mother Sheree passed away last year, are living with grandparents, Noel and Gloria, and an uncle.

The demountable will free up a room for Sebastian and Kiara in the small two bedroom home.

Family friend and Grafton woman Carol Ordish has been fundraising for Sebastian and Kiara.

She said she was astounded that so many people had volunteered their skills.

"It's been a case of working together," Mrs Ordish said.

"These are all busy people.

"And there are more people than us who have helped."

Grafton builder Robin Gipp said he got involved because that 'was something he did'.

"This is one of the things I do, especially for kids," Mr Gipp said.

"Many hands make light work."
