Following a gas explosion in Bude, a fundraiser was set up by Nigel Kenneally for the Cornish family from Traly Close.
The home of Alan and Josie Cornish was rocked by a large gas explosion in the evening of 20th January.
Luckily, they and their son Darren, who was there at the time, managed to escape the blast with only minor injuries. However, the house and many of their possessions were not so lucky.
The fund currently sits at over £7,250, testimony to the generosity of local people.
