Home help for Bernie
Hornfeck said that as the former Chair of the Apumoana Marae, he is able to stay at the flat ‘‘as long as I need to’’.
‘‘I never thought I’d be living in one.’’
He also said he was grateful for the fund raising efforts.
‘‘We didn’t have contents insurance, which I now regret, so that’ll be useful when we get the new house.’’
Hornfeck’s home was destroyed by fire in the early hours of Tuesday June 20 in what one neighbour described as an ‘‘inferno.’’
Anyone wanting to donate funds can find bank account details on the Facebook page ‘Help Bernie Hornfeck rebuild his home.’
Bernie Hornfeck is staying at the kaumatua flats at the Apumoana Marae.
The fire, described as an ‘inferno’, left the property gutted.
