GoFundMe page set up to help local SES member who died helping others in last week's storms

Last week, the Shoalhaven and Illawarra saw a pretty significant weather event roll across the coast. We saw flash flooding, and storms - naturally, the SES was pretty busy, selflessly helping others. 

Sadly, 39 year old SES volunteer Billy Martin suffered cardiac arrest whilst out on a job, and couldn't be revived. This news devastated his partner, Jessica and their 9-year-old daughter, Amarni - as well as the SES and their surrounding community.

Extended family members set up a GoFundMe page to help the family heading into Christmas, and hopefully cover some of their funeral costs. The page has raised over $24 000 in just 4 days.
