A HOME was badly damaged by fire at the weekend.

The fire at the house in Paul Close, Hailsham, was quickly extinguished, but apparently burnt school uniforms and toys.

A GoFundMe page has been set up this evening by a neighbour who wants to raise money to replace the items.

Here is Zoe Pomfrey: “Hello, my name is Zoe and I’m setting this up for my next door neighbour Emily, who sadly had a house fire earlier today and it has destroyed her porch, and a small part of the inside home.

Emily lives here with her young son, and unfortunately her son’s new school uniform and toys all got burnt in the fire.

Emily is currently unable to live at her home now due to the damage and how unsafe it is.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, would just like to be able to help her as much as possible in this awful time”
