You Never Know...

We were stunned yesterday when we received news of our friends Sue and Mark down near Montauban.  They were in their bedroom at 8 am when they heard strange noises.  Sue looked out of the window to see a wall of flames!  They got out OK but, their barn (and Mark's workshop) and virtually half the house was burnt out.

There were some 40 firemen and police to get the blaze under control, but virtually everything they have is either burnt, smoke-damaged or wet.  It is going to take ages for them to rebuild their house and their lives.  We naturally want to help them as much as possible, but unfortunately we haven't got a magic wand!
