POLICE LEGACY BALL - Saturday 26th October - SUN PICTURES
The Kyle Andrews Foundation has been announced as the co-recipient of funds from this year’s Policy Legacy Ball.
Broome Police Legacy Ball chairman Detective Senior Sergeant Brett Baddock said he was delighted the event would support the foundation in its latest project – to purchase property in Perth to accommodate families with children receiving treatment at Princess Margaret Hospital.
KAF chairman Ian Poulter said the foundation was “thrilled” and “honoured” to be supported this year.
Mr Poulter said proceeds from the ball would go towards the housing project, and add to the $200,000 already raised.
“It’s for families who are struggling to find a location near the hospital,” he said.
“It’s about giving them a place to stay and not having to rely on their own accommodation and paying for it themselves.”
Our Thanks to the Broome Police for this fantastic opportunity.

In early 1998 a young Broome boy, undergoing treatment for leukaemia at PMH (Princess Margaret Hospital) in Perth WA, had a dream of bringing some of his young friends from the ward to Cable Beach in Broome so that, in his words,
"they might feel better".

Carrying On the Dream, In His Memory
Kyle was born 15th January 1987 in Mandurah. He returned to Broome with his family when only a few months old. He spent the winter months on Cable Beach in nappies or nothing.
It was a life style he grew up with and at the young age of two could windsurf and surf. As the years went on he continually challenged himself to improve and master skills in all aspects of his life. There was no one who could catch him at running or surf life saving and at the age of ten was Broome Surf Club Junior Ironman. Not only did he take out his age group, but he beat a number of older kids as well.
His real love, however, was fishing and following in his brother Troy's footsteps, he spent his last years catching some of the best fish around Broome. In March of 1997 he was diagnosed with leukaemia and spent 16 months fighting the disease only to lose the battle on the 23rd July 1998.
