The money has come into our offices after a fourth arson attack in the past two years on a couple who are turning a former pub at Three Holes into a family home.

Sara Ingram, formerly of Chatteris, has been left penniless after repeated arson attacks left her home and possessions uninsurable but she said she was heartened by the kindness of people who had rallied round to help.

“I am overwhelmed and humbled and very thankful,” she said.

“We have been given food, clothing, toys for the twins, even a roast dinner bought to us from the Lamb and Flag pub.”

The donations have kicked off a massive mission to support the family with a call for help on Saturday, October 18, to turn up at the property from 9am - the couple are looking for anyone who can offer support to help with painting, gardening or cleaning.

They are looking for anyone who can provide a water boiler to make drinks for volunteers and also appealing for anybody who can offer storage for furniture.
