A fundraising campaign has been launched to help a mum of two young boys who died after a fire started by their father.
Claire Throssell is wanting to renovate the house on Tennyson Close, Penistone where sons Jack Sykes, aged 12, and Paul, nine, so she can sell it and move elsewhere in the village.
Darren Sykes, 44, who was divorced from Claire, lured the boys to the house to play with a new train set being starting the fire after dousing the property in petrol in October, last year.
Paul and his dad died that day, Jack five days later.
Inquests into the deaths recorded verdicts that Jack and Paul were unlawfully killed and that their dad took his own life.
The house was not covered by an insurance policy and so Penistone and Thurlstone Team Ministry has launched a fundraising campaign to help Claire.
Claire said: “Six minutes one night in October, a night I will never forget, completely destroyed my former home and ultimately my world, with the taking of my boys Jack and Paul.
“I would like to buy a small home and stay in the village where Paul and Jack lie but in order to do this the family home will have to be renovated.
“To undertake this renovation alone is too big a mountain for me to climb, any help, however small, would make a difference.”
Father David Hopkin, rector of Penistone and Thurlstone Team Ministry, said: “As well as dealing with her bereavement it has become clear that Claire, on top of everything else has lost her home.
“Many people have asked me what they can do to help Claire and express their support practically.
“I am launching this campaign to raise funds to help Claire restore her former family home so that it can be sold.”
