Charity open 2019
This seasons Charity open match was fished on Richardson lake which was in a dour mood for the match fished by 26 competitors in the early rain but fortunately it brightened up later with the fishing improving in the last hour or so. Steve Moore on peg 19 won with 28.2.0 and promptly donated his £80 winnings to the charity. Charlie Salmon on peg 28 feedered his way to 21.10.0 and second from third placed Mark Shaw also on the feeder in peg 3 with 19.0.0. Colin Underwood on 11 took fourth with 18.0.0. Sections were 1-21 Andy Rogers (5) 17.8.0 and 26-53 Stuart Kendall (30) 13.10.0. Organiser Roy Fiander is to be congratulated having raised including his curry night takings and donated winnings on the day £725 for the Headway charity this year. The donation was gratefully received by Rowena Tyler from Headway who also presented the trophy to Steve.
Charity open match on Richardson lake Sunday 18th August
This seasons Charity match is being held at Marsh Farm Richardson lake on Sunday 18th August and we hope all the competitors make it another great match and day as per previous years gone by. Fees on the day are £20 with £10 going to the charity, enter via the Match booking line 01483 415386 or contact Roger or Roy. I am sure Tony Corpes ( Who donated all his winnings to the Charity on the day last year) will not let his championship go very easily but we hope you all have a great day out in aid of a very worthy cause. Draw is 8-30 am at the lake and fishing is 10am until 3-30pm started on an air horn by Roy Fiander who's efforts make this event happen each year. If you are unable to fish but still wish to donate something to the cause be it monies or a raffle prize the guys at the on site Apollo shop will take it and pass it on to Roger or Roy
This year all monies are going to Headway (Surrey) and all the money raised today will be pooled together with the money collected on Curry night in early July.
