Tradies flow in to help family

MORE tradesmen have come forward willing to help a Pottsville victim of an alleged attempted murder.

The Tweed Daily News reported on Wednesday the Pottsville community was ready to unite to help Dallis Arnold's young family, which was left without its bread winner after a vicious bashing in Byron Bay on March 7.

The 31-year-old carpenter was in the process of building his family's home at Koala Beach before being hospitalised from the attack.

Business owner Robina Lathouras and her husband Paul are planning to get the home finished for the family so Mr Arnold's 18-month-old son, Kaleb, and fiancée, Jo, can move in while Dallis completes a six-month recovery.

Mr Lathouras said more local people had pledged their support since Wednesday, including a tiler who offered his services.

The amount of funds needed to get the house to a liveable condition will be worked out so there is a target to work towards in coming weeks.

Mr Arnold's fiancee and his brother, Jade, were at hospital yesterday visiting Dallis.

There will be raffles at the Pottsville Tavern and coin tins spread around the village to help raise funds.

Mrs Lathouras said a bare-foot bowls day was also planned.

To offer support call Mrs Lathouras at Sakaja Hair Face and Body on (02) 6676 1688.
