Thank you for your support.

While we are still struggling to comprehend the enormity of this devastating occurrence, we have been comforted, encouraged and overwhelmed by the outpouring of empathy from Newcastle and the wider community.

It is humbling to realise that something we and The Edwards team have worked so hard to accomplish, has in fact, made such a big impact. This fire has stopped us in our tracks and yet has gifted us an awareness of the far reaching and previously unknown support for a project we call The Edwards.

We are grateful that no one was hurt in the fire and that damage to the West End neighbourhood was kept to a minimum. We attribute this result completely to the actions of the fire brigade, police and other responding emergency services who did an amazing job.

We look forward to the next phase but at this point can only take things one moment at a time.
