Lesley Rhead will be facing her fears on 23rd September as she takes to the skies to fundraise for her Dad, Anthony Tittle, who sadly passed away.
Anthony, pictured on the right in the above photo with Neil Adams, was a former coach within the British Judo Association and first took to the mat when he was 18 and continued until shortly before he died.
To mark the occasion, daughter Lesley will be performing a sponsored sky dive in Nottingham to raise money for the Douglas MacMillan Hospice.
“My Dad died in February 2015 of stomach cancer and spent his last weeks in a local Hospice to us called the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.”
“They were fantastic support for both my Dad and the family and I want to give something back to them” Lesley explained.
“My dad loved judo and dedicated his life to it. He coached for most of it and was highly respected around the country for his experience and knowledge in the sport which he welcomed in sharing with others.”
She has already raised over £600.00 towards the charity and would welcome any additional donations from BJA members who may have known her dad through their time on the mat.
