OnBuy donates gifts to family who lost everything in fire

No primary category set

A family living in Telford lost everything in fire after a firework that was launched into an open window destroyed their home and possessions. Thankfully an appeal for the family has received a huge response including from online marketplace OnBuy.

Nothing will replace what the family lost, including keepsakes of their lost child but thanks to the patronage of kind-hearted people the family have been able to get back on their feet with a new home and some donations. OnBuy donated items totaling £1000 to make the move into their new house a less daunting experience for the kids. The donations included an Apple IPad, Apple Airpods unicorn slippers, teddy fleece bedding and LED lights.

“No family should experience anything as devastating as the Offland family have, and being a father myself, I can’t begin to imagine how difficult the last year has been for them. Community is so important to us at OnBuy, and it was incredibly inspiring to see how Jordan’s local community stepped up to support the family after the fire and we wanted to do our bit to help.

“When we heard the family were moving into their new, permanent home, we wanted to gift Jordan’s daughters some items to make this move even more exciting. With access to millions of products, from kitchenware to technology, we’re in the ideal position to help make the Offland family’s new house feel like a home.”
Cas Paton, CEO and founder, OnBuy.com
