Haiti Disaster Angling Appeal Fundraiser

  •  

SUPPORT angling's most ambitious fundraiser yet through a Charity Predator Day, Mega Raffle and Auction in support of children of the recent Haiti earthquake. It is estimated as many as 200,000 were killed and left up to 1.5 million homeless, many of them children.

Where the money will go?

Organisers David de Vere of Bury Hill Fisheries and Kevin Coe of Llyn Y Gors Fishery and The Fishing Warehouse feel that the monies raised would be more focused and worthwhile given to a small charity, which has a long standing presence in Haiti rather than supporting one of the bigger emergency relief charities. The pair have therefore chosen to support SOS Children, an international charity based in Cambridge which has had a presence in Haiti since 1978.
