Anglers Against Cancer
Anglers Against Cancer, Ron Buss is
the Patron, sadly due to illness Marsh
Pratley will be standing down after
our main event in September, but we
will continue with the support of our
Members to continue to raise money
for Children With Cancer UK. We are
hoping to reach our Target of £1/4
Million in 4 years for CWCUK at our
Main Event at Orchid Lakes 21-23
September, with our Mega Raffle
being drawn along with BBQ on Saturday 22nd September. Bivvy City
will be open for Anglers to attend
from Thursday 20th and is only £10
which includes the BBQ.
When we attend shows like the
Carp Society Winter Show, we pay our
own way ie Hotels, Food, Fuel and
take nothing from the funds we raise
with the help of Anglers of all types
and Fishery Owners UK/FRANCE/
THAILAND giving us holidays to
Auction and of course without doubt
the amazing amount of gifts we
receive from Tackle Dealers/Tackle
Shops for our Mega Raffle.
We would like to thank all our followers and supporters for helping us
to raise such a massive amount and I
know both Ron & Marsh (and of
course myself) look forward to seeing
as many friends as possible at Orchid
in September - Lets fill Bivvy City to
show our appreciation for the kindness that Marsh has shown by continually allowing our Events on his
Lakes at Orchid.
As Ron would say ‘Be Lucky’ Jo

of the annual restricted period for
coarse fish. Officers undertook 729
targeted patrols, also detecting 115
other offences, mainly unlicensed
fishing, but also removed several illegally set traps.
Remember to check the rules for
freshwater fishing and to make sure
you are fishing with the correct
