These fund raising events comprised of, three open competitions, which were open to disabled and none-disabled anglers. All fished on accessible venues featured on The reason for these events was to raise much needed funds for our chosen charity Francis House Children's Hospice.


The cheeky face pictured above of a very poorly little girl Kirsty, has brought the plight of this charity to the public eye with the Kirsty Millenium appeal. They are currently three quarters of the way towards the 5 million target, which is set to ensure the long-term viability of the hospice.

Theres no stopping this young man he is definitely a class act and one that is becoming harder to compete against. He is already sponsored by G.O.T Baits and Im sure others will be queuing up to support this talent in the future. Though this was his first visit to Lemington Lakes, he still managed to show the rest of the field just what a talent he is, by catching quality carp up in the water, using his sponsors feed pellet and soft pellet on a size 14 B911 hook and combining this with 0.20 line - using three top kits all kitted out with red hydro and fished at depths between 3ft and 18inches. Even though he was bagging, he still found time to get off his box to go and help the disabled-angler off the next peg when he was struggling to land his own fish, Bucko says "thank-you very much"
