Angling Trust International Team Fundraising at 'THE BIG ONE' Angling Show


The Big One banner 2014
Dick Clegg, Joe Roberts and members of the Angling Trust Team England Ladies, Veterans and Disabled international teams will be at THE BIG ONE show in Farnborough on 22-23 Feb on a fund raising mission trying to generate enough money to send the teams to their respective World Championships later this year.

Unfortunately the teams do not receive any government funding and have to rely on the generosity of the public when the members try to organise raffles, race nights and angling competitions, etc.

Dick Clegg, International Events Manager stated "This year is no exception and our first attempt to raise funds will be at THE BIG ONE show where we will be once more running a raffle. Lots of companies have supported us by donating hundreds of prizes ranging from ground bait to rods, reels clothing, keep nets and many other angling related items.

We will be located just inside the café area from the main hall and tickets will be on sale for just £1 each and prize winners will be able to check immediately if they have won a prize.  
We have a great range of quality prizes with waterproof suits, fleeces and bib and brace trousers from Drennan. We already have goods from Maver and groundbait from Sensas and with a promise of donations from Shimano, Korda, Garbolino, Matrix, Preston Innovations, ZebcoBrowning and Middy our prize table will exceed £6,000 at retail.

We would all like to thank the companies who are helping us this year and hope that we can justify their support by winning a shed load of medals."
