Family hit by fire helped by community

The homeless family of Red Deer singer Randi Boulton has benefitted from the generosity of Delburne and area residents.

Dave and Betty Boulton and their son William lost everything, including a family cat, when fire destroyed their farm home in the middle of the night on Sept. 25.

The community rallied to hold a fundraiser for them and they recently received a cheque for $22,113.50 to tide them over until their home insurance coverage is worked out.

“They lost everything and the process is taking longer than they expected,” said Chad Huseby of the Servus Credit Union Delburne branch.

The family also received donations of clothing and household items immediately after the fire for the house they’re now renting in Elnora.
