Funds Pour in to Aid Josh's Family

A Go Fund Me page set up to support the family of a former local who lost his life in a traffic accident on Friday (June 28) continues to surge past expectations.

Josh Leetham was killed when the ute he was driving was involved in a head-on collision with a truck on the Sturt Highway, west of Hay, on Friday morning.

Josh leaves behind his wife Maddy and three children.

Family friend, Charlea Clarke, who now lives in QLD, set up the Go Fund Me page as a way to support the family in this extremely difficult time, and set the original funding target at $50,000.

Now, having raised almost $80,000, Charlea has been overwhelmed by the generosity of the community in its support for Josh’s grieving family.

“We nearly hit the first target within the first day. I can’t even explain how proud and happy I am that our community is rallying behind this family in need. Just goes to show that they’re amazing people.”

As at 11am Tuesday July 2, the page has raised $80,382.
