Rob’s Mailbag
Jake Watson Charity Event
Hi Rob,
My name is Neil Chapman and a digger driver from Birkenhead. I have
been doing charity events for the last
five years since my own son Alfie was
born with a heart defect and also
wheelchair bound. Along the way I
have raised in the region of £30,000
for Alderhey Children’s Hospital,
Claire House Children’s Hospice and
a number of other personal charities.
On the 27th of April I did a charity
fishing event for the Jake Watson
Jake, a young Everton fan, was just
14 years old when he suddenly
passed away following a severe
asthma attack. The Event took place
at ex Everton player Tony Hibberts
Lac De Premier.
Consequently, I am mow on target
to meet and pass my target of £7000.
Head bailiff Nick Lee and his wife
Kele made sure everything at the lake
ran perfectly for event.
I would like to say a special thank
you to Carp & Cat for providing transport to and from this event, also Parkfield Angling Centre for providing
tackle, Old Kiln Angling, Monster Particle and so many more for prize
donations. Pictured here is myself
with a Lac De Premier resident of 63lb
10oz together with Tony, Nick and
Kele and also our charity event picture and Jake Watson. n
