Scott Eyre father of Hope, started his own project and decided to combine something he enjoyed as a hobby to raise money and awareness for our cause.
Angling for Hope became his mission and helped give him a positive focus in moving forward. Scott's aim was to create awareness for fathers and help raise money towards a new a bereavement room.
Scott set to it, finding a venue, organising a raffle event, winners prizes and a bbq on the day as a thanks to the competitors. A massive thanks is owed to Pasture Wood Fishery in Barton Upon Humber for letting Scott use their lake at zero cost meaning every penny made went into our kitty.
Scott was overwhelmed with the feedback from the angling community and was astounded with donations coming in and complimentary items that were given. From bait, free sessions, tackle and even a fishing holiday in France for the winning pair.
Just within this event Scott raised a whopping £2620.20 and more awareness than we could of hoped for.
Plans are already being made for Angling for Hope 2018 to carry on fundraising.
