Canadian rockers Arcade Fire are helping to fund their favourite florist's comeback after her store was gutted by a fire on Monday (22Apr13).

Tamey Lau's Dragon Flowers in Montreal was destroyed by the blaze and now her musician friends are trying to help her rebuild.

Tweeting a link to her page on Wednesday (24Apr13), the band wrote, "Tamey has filled our homes with flowers for years and is well loved in our neighbourhood. Let's help her out!"

Thanks to the group's help, Lau's target of $10,000 (Gbp6,250) has already been reached and over 370 people have made donations.

Thanking donors for their generosity, Lau says, "This kind of support, makes me... I can stand up again, I can be strong again."
