An interview about the Mill Markets turned into something else entirely ... when a listener rang up with an incredible story.
"Leo" was saved from drowning by Mark Ward (pictured) when the pair were both 9 years old and swimming in a waterhole.
By co-incidence, Mark's young son and Leo's grandaughter are in the same swimming class.
Mark from the Mill Markets donated $2000 to the 3ba Ballarat Christmas Appeal which has now been matched by local brickie Leo as well.
Leo who works for himself as a Bricklayer also dontated $2000 to the 3BA Xmas appeal to match Mark Wards donation of $2000. Winners all around
