Livingstone account tops $12,000

Messages of goodwill continue to flow in for the grieving St Leonards community.

A bank account for Katharine Webb, whose children Bradley (9) and Ellen (6) Livingstone were killed in St Leonards last week, topped $12,000 yesterday.

Staff from St Leonards School, which the children attended, set up the account after the shootings and principal Jo Wilson said donations to the account had reached $12,082 by yesterday afternoon.

An auction organised by school alumni will go live next Wednesday on Trade Me.

Organiser actor Tim Foley said the response had been ''amazing'' and dozens of items and activities had been given to the cause.

Money raised from the auction would go to the school and he was confident ''thousands of dollars'' would be raised.

The school received another gift in the wake of the tragedy, asphalt for paving the school's driveway being given to the school, which also would be laid for free, Mrs Wilson said.

''That sort of generosity is brilliant,'' she said.

A service for the children will be held at the school at 2pm tomorrow.
