The Ashburton Benevolent Trust has set up a fund for victims of Monday's tragedy (1 September) with the support of Ashburton District Council.
Mayor Angus McKay says the fund is one way that our community can show support for the victims and their loved ones.
"There are many members of the community who wish to help in some small way and show support to the families of Leigh Cleveland and Peggy Noble,
"Many of us have been affected directly and indirectly by this sad day but we will stand together as a community to get through this difficult and emotional time." he said.
Contributions can be made online or at any Westpac Bank branch.
