The Masonic fishing Charity.
“The Masonic Fishing Charity’s aim is to bring an interactive fishing and countryside experience to people with special needs”. It achieves this by running fishing events, both coarse and fly, at various fisheries and inviting participants from special needs Schools and Centers and people who have suffered trauma to come and join in.
This is far more than just a day’s fishing though! It enables mentally disabled people to gain in confidence, meet new challenges and achieve tangible results to take away helps physically disabled people (including war heroes and stroke victims) to participate and experience something that may otherwise be unavailable to them and it enables our volunteers to give back to the community and have some fun along the way.
