A SHEFFIELD broker ventured Down Under recently to raise money for a local boy with leukaemia.

Jon Harrison, a director of Sheafmoor Brokers, went all the way to New Zealand to do his sponsored bungee jump. The £2,000 he raised will send eight-year-old Ryan Gratton on a holiday to Florida, where he will swim with dolphins.

He has endured three years of chemotherapy in his battle against his cancer, but will have to wait another 12 months for the all-clear.

Cornhill, Zurich, Norwich Union and NIG were among the sponsors. Jon will be doing another sponsored 10,000ft freefall in summer to raise more money for leukaemia research.
