A Horsham family who lost everything in a house fire have been touched by the kindness of an eight-year-old boy, who has donated his bike as a Christmas gift to the struggling family.
On Friday, eight-year-old Jayden Moloney met with four-year-old Elijah to hand over his old Spiderman bike, which he had put on offer to a family in need after outgrowing it.
A grin from ear-to-ear lit up Elijah's face as he handled his new bike, which had been cleaned and polished by Jayden.
Elijah's mother Chrystal said she was overwhelmed by the family's generosity.
"I am absolutely blown away by Shannon and her children's generosity by giving Elijah this little bike. Absolutely so happy," she said.
"Elijah doesn't quite know how to ride a bike yet, but he will grow into it. He lost his old bike in the fire.
"For an eight year old to think about giving away something like that. That shows good parenting. He has a big heart."
Elijah was also gifted a $50 Drift83 voucher from Lisa and Tony Grantham to buy a new helmet alongside the bike.
Jayden said he was happy to part with the bike for such a good cause.
"I really hope he (Elijah) likes the bike," he said.
In October, Jayden's generosity impressed many in the community after he offered his old Spiderman bike as a Christmas present to a family in need.
Jayden's mother, Shannon put the call out on Wimmera Facebook groups and received a large response from community members leaving a message of support.
Ms Moloney said she was proud of her children's generosity.
"I am glad it has gone to someone who is going to love it. Someone who needs it," she said.
Elijah, his mother Chrystal, and his two brothers lost almost all of their possessions the past week when a fire destroyed their home.
A GoFundMe has been established to assist Chrystal and her three children, after a friend from Queensland heard what had happened.

Donated goods can also be dropped off at 15 Creek Crescent, Horsham.
