Mother and son in leap for char­ity

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

A RED­CLIFFE man and his mother have sky­dived to raise money for Breast Can­cer Care WA.

Tony Drake-Brock­man took the leap of faith along­side his mother Chici for her birth­day on De­cem­ber 9.

He had planned on do­ing the jump wear­ing a tutu but was un­able to find one in his size.

“A few years ago I did a sky­dive fundraiser with some friends and at the time mum said sky­div­ing was on her bucket list,” Mr Drake-Brock­man said.

“I never for­got this and saw the op­por­tu­nity to get her a ticket when the item came up for auc­tion at Spring Day at the Races.”

Mr Drake-Brock­man is hop­ing to raise over $10,000 for the char­ity.

Breast Can­cer Care WA has pro­vided breast can­cer nurses, coun­selling and fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to more than 1000 peo­ple af­fected by breast can­cer each year for more than 15 years.

Gen­eral man­ager Jil­lian Shiels said, “It is peo­ple like Tony and Chici who make all the dif­fer­ence.”
