Andrew Goodfellow knows from hard experience that when it’s time to go, it’s really time to go. He and his dog were lucky to escape a sudden fireball that was coming towards Andrew’s property as the Kian Road fire approached. They had to navigate through virtually complete darkness for kilometres to make their way out.

Thankfully, they both made it out unscathed, but sadly Andrew’s home, which was settled amongst a magnificent rainforest, was destroyed. 

Andrew is currently living with friends in a neighbouring town, until insurance and local relief efforts are put into place. “Everything takes so long, you almost forget what it is like living there,” he says.

But Andrew is resilient, and he’s getting on with things. He drives the local school bus, and spends countless hours volunteering at local relief centres, divvying out supplies to other people in the community who need all the help they can get. 

Davey’s donation will be connected to his water tank to establish water supply to his home once it is built.

“A big thank you Dora and to all at Davey Water Products. The pump will be a great saving on the costs to rebuild. Please pass on my thanks to all those whom thought up the generous offer” wrote Andrew Goodfellow.
