Church offers home to family of boy who died in fire
A TOOWOOMBA church has offered the family of two-year-old Brodie Fuller, who died in a house fire, one of their homes.
Parishioners of the Lifeworks Uniting Church in Newtown are rallying to fix up a large home for the family of seven.
The devastating fire in September destroyed the family's North Toowoomba house and all of their possessions.
Lifeline Darling Downs has been in contact with members of the family since the September tragedy.
And while the family has gratefully received donations of clothing, meals and other necessities, up until yesterday they were still in need of a permanent, replacement home.
Derek Tuffield from Lifeline said the house should be ready for the family within two weeks.
"The Uniting Church has been incredibly generous and have responded quickly," Mr Tuffield said.
"There's a bit of work to get the house ready though."
Grandparents of Brodie, Melissa and Sam Fuller, spoke with The Chronicle yesterday in the hope that they could find suitable, permanent accommodation and other household items to start rebuilding their lives after the tragedy.
Mrs Fuller said she had been overwhelmed by the support shown so far by the community.
Mr Tuffield said: "We have had responses from people who want to cook meals for the family as well as donate toys for the young children."
