On behalf of my fishing club, Epsom angling, I have arranged to take some of the amputee lads and ladies from Headly Court military hospital. We have full disabled excess at our waters and enough volunteers, but what we do need is fishing tackle, condition not important. I will arrange collection.

We did something similar about ten years ago which was great fun and very worth while.
This won't be taking place till spring so gives us time to sort out equipment.

Matt, anything will be considered, i would guess if there any major damage then no, its more about getting them active and having fun then serious fishing, but they do tend to be competitive.

What an awesome cause, Hope you guys have a great time. You say you have enough volunteers, if your short give me a shout. I'm a serving guy in the RAF and I used to be a keen fisherman.

Fantastic idea Phil! Afraid I have no fishing gear myself but hope this goes well


Same again with the volunteers, post up when it is and if I'm free I'll try to come along if you need any more help.
