Fishing for charity funds

A DAY of fishing in Tickenham saw hundreds-of-pounds raised for a breast cancer counselling charity.

A total of �350 was collected for Casting for Recovery during an event at Jacklands Fishing Lakes.

A ladies-only tuition event proved popular and was followed by a fun fishing match for couples.

For many it was a first attempt at fly-fishing and at the end of the afternoon Carolie Eastwood and Bryan Taylor were declared the winners after catching the heaviest three fish.
