Community turns out in force to help Brett

Over 550 people attended a Benefit Night for Brett Connellan to raise money to help with his on-going treatment and rehabilitation.

His parents Malcolm and Gail spoke of their pride in Brett’s strength in facing the ordeal, and their deep gratitude for the overwhelming support the family has been shown by both friends and strangers since the shark attack at Bombo.

In an emotional speech, his father said he felt betrayed by the ocean that their family loves so much. Despite that, Malcolm has no doubt that Brett will eventually be able to get back in the water again, and he’ll be right there with him.
