Reeled in by chance for re­cre­ation

Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

REBOUNDWA mem­bers were caught up hook, line and sinker in an early-morn­ing fish­ing trip off the coast of Fre­man­tle this month.

The not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion helps chil­dren and adults liv­ing with a phys­i­cal dis­abil­ity to be­come more con­nected and in­volved through sport and re­cre­ation.

With the help of the Fre­man­tle Sail­ing Club, they set off with a boat­load of par­tic­i­pants and Sport and Re­cre­ation Min­is­ter Mick Mur­ray to en­joy a re­lax­ing morn­ing on the wa­ter as part of their an­nual fish­ing trip.

A ReboundWA spokesman said that without the sup­port of the Fre­man­tle Sail­ing Club, who had ren­o­vated their premises to make them more ac­ces­si­ble to those with a dis­abil­ity, it would be too dif­fi­cult for peo­ple in wheelchairs to go on deep sea fish­ing trips such as this.
