Led by Lenka Mayo, locals have raised over £12,000 for the family devastated by the blaze. In an interview with Sedgemoor FM, Lenka said she had never done any fundraising like this before but arranged it as a thank you to the family for sticking by the community during lockdown.

In a social media post, the family called the fire “devastating news” but said they had been “touched” by the support before going on to thank emergency services and to everyone who has been here helping
