Lawrie Carr ZL2HQ

Hello All,
As most of you are aware, Lawrie and his wife Diana, unfortunately lost their family house to a fire on Friday Night. Every thing was destroyed and as you can imagine, this is devastating event to happen to anyone. A family member of Lawrie & Diana has set up a "give a little" page to help them out. The details are below. If you can help, please click on the link below.

Thank You
ZL2KO Committee

Hi,

My Name is Emaline Carr- I am the daughter of Lawrie Carr and Diana Carr. As I am sure you know about the tragedy that was the house fire at my parents house on Friday night in Feilding, which destroyed everything.
I know the ham radio community which Dad was a part of have been concerned and have kindly reached out to help, however may be unsure how they can help. I thought I would share a give a little page my Aunt has set up for Mum and Dad get back on their feet.

Thank you all for your support that this difficult time.
Many thanks,
Emaline
