BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA – An online GoFundMe campaign has today been launched to raise support for Australian violist, Belinda Williams – following the tragic car accident on Monday that claimed the lives of her partner, Queensland Symphony Orchestra violinist Stephen Phillips, and her two sons.
The family of 5 were holidaying in New Zealand, on Monday, when their rental car collided at force with a delivery truck.
Stepfather, Stephen (54), Jasper (14) and Reuben (12) were all killed instantly.
Belinda and her 9 year old daughter, Tessa, remain in Waikato Hospital in a stable condition.
Stephen had served as a 1st violinist with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, in Brisbane, Australia, since 1987.
Belinda has freelanced with the ensemble since 2002.
“This fund is for a heart wrenching event that has caused waves of devastation …” campaign organiser Rachel James has said.
“Any donation will help Belinda and Tessa rebuild their lives together. Thank you for your love and support …” she has urged.
