Clayton’s Towing has generously offered to match dollar-for-dollar funds raised on a GoFundMe page set up after Monday’s night’s horrific collision near Kumbia in which a mother and her four children died.

In a post on social media, the company said the tragic crash was one of the most devastating its team had attended during the company’s 50 years of service.

“It was a heart-wrenching scene for all involved,” the company wrote.

“Charmaine was a loving mum and her passion was for a charity called Youth Insearch which is dedicated to providing powerful weekend workshops and support groups for teenagers at risk, to help them deal with issues such as broken and dysfunctional homes, poverty, domestic violence, sexual, physical & emotional abuse, death & grief and other traumatic events.

“It has helped 30,000 young people across Australia

“The Clayton family have been involved in supporting the Youth Insearch charity for over 10 years, in particular for youth who are struggling throughout regional Queensland.

“Clayton’s will match donations … to support Charmaine’s passion, Youth Insearch Foundation.

“Please let us know your name (must match the name you used to donate on the GoFundMe page) and your amount donated below and we will contribute the same amount.

“Our heartfelt thoughts go out to the family, friends and communities who have all been impacted by the loss of this precious family.”

Donations to the GoFundMe page (see link below) should also be noted on Clayton’s Towing’s Facebook page (second link below).
