Home help for Bernie

Rotorua Review - - FRONT PAGE -

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.’
