Givealittle page set up to support the Elwin Family

A Givealittle page has been set up by Mahurangi East Volunteer Fire Brigade to help support a local fire fighter and his family in Snells Beach.

Anthony Elwin is well known in the Snells Beach community as a local builder, rugby coach, school parent, and as an indispensable member of the Mahurangi East Volunteer Fire Brigade.

The Elwin family (Anthony, Danielle and their two young children) are very much entrenched in the community and are a special part of our brigade whanau.

Unfortunately Anthony is facing an unexpected and life-altering medical issue that has left him very unwell and has meant several stints in hospital since January. He has been too unwell to work and, as a self-employed builder and main earner for his family, this has strained the family’s finances. While they are receiving some financial support, this is not enough to cover their ongoing living costs and has been further compounded by medical expenses and travel for treatment.

As a brigade, we are doing what we can to support their family, but have received permission to put it out to the wider community for further support. As a first responder, Anthony has attended many emergency calls, showing up for members of our community in their most vulnerable moments - let’s do the same for this beautiful family. Any donations will be greatly appreciated and will help provide for their family.

We ask that the privacy of the Elwin Family is respected - please do not contact Anthony or Danielle directly. Any questions or further offers of support can be directed to the Mahurangi East VFB Chief, Jason Connolly ([email protected]).
