Bags of praise for Tesco – now let’s en­sure an­gling gets its share of fund­ing

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

IT WOULD have been so easy for big com­pa­nies to add to their prof­its with the 5p they make from each car­rier bag sale, so all credit to Tesco for giv­ing this money to wor­thy causes.

This money could help con­vert young­sters from elec­tron­ics to fish­ing rods. Coach­ing projects and com­mu­nity lakes are perfect for the fund­ing, and I be­lieve they would put it to fan­tas­tic use.

I’m sure the amount of money raised by the sale of 5p car­rier bags would run into the mil­lions, and hope­fully an­gling projects are proac­tive enough to ap­ply so that our sport gets its fair share of the cash.
