About 200 people hopped in Waubs Bay for Phil's Dive for a Cure

Phil’s Dive for a Cure saw about 200 people head to Waubs Bay at Bicheno to raise funds for the Leukemia Foundation in memory of Phil Malkin.

Organiser Tach Malkin said a great day was had by all.

“We had a great dive component with over 25 divers first thing in the morning travelling from the North and the South,” she said.

Ms Malkin said that once the total has been tallied for the year, the amount raised should be more than $26,000.

“In over three years this event has raised over $100,000 for the Leukemia Foundation,” she said.

“From the bottom of our hearts, a big thank-you in honour of my husband, and father of two, Phil.

“One man’s wish to help others becoming a reality.”
