North-east daredevil Gary Leslie is skydiving throughout Australia to raise money for local charities.
Cancer survivor Gary is taking to the skies to raise £8,000 for four charities in just four weeks.
And he has, fittingly, dubbed this the 4×4 Challenge.
After a gruelling course of chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment, Gary has decided to celebrate his health with a month-long trip Down Under.
He said: “The last year has been very difficult for both myself and my family, but we’ve come out the other side and I’m so thankful that currently there is no sign of any active disease.
“I’m extremely grateful to be in a position to take on this challenge, which is my chance to give something back to a number of organisations that are lifesavers in the local community.”
Gary has dedicated each of his jumps to his nominated causes, which include Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s radiotherapy department, UCAN, AFC Community Trust and Friends of ANCHOR Dream Big Appeal.
Gary said: “I’m a lifelong Dons fan so supporting the great work of the AFC Community Trust was also really important to me.”
For the challenge Gary will don his kilt and skydive from 14,000ft.
Georgian Dress Hire in Aberdeen has donated the different kilts that will be worn during each jump.
David Stephen, owner of the shop, said: “I’ve known Gary for many years and I’m delighted that he’s got better.
“Any money that can go towards research for cancer treatment is great.
“So, if we can help, we will”.
On January 31, the daring Aberdonian took his first jump in Melbourne for Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s radiotherapy department.
His next jump took place yesterday in Sydney for UCAN, and is followed on February 14 in Byron Bay for AFC Community Trust.
His last jump will be in Brisbane on February 20 for Friends of ANCHOR.
