Huge suc­cess for Tiny Lives

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - NEWS & VIEWS -

HATS off to all an­glers who helped the or­gan­is­ers of a re­cent char­ity event beat their dona­tions tar­get by 2000 per cent! Angling to Save Tiny Lives took place in Septem­ber at Northum­ber­land’s Chat­ton and Thrun­ton Long Crag Fish­eries. Aim­ing to raise money for the Tiny Lives Trust char­ity, which sup­ports pre­ma­ture and sick ba­bies, the event or­gan­is­ers, Alec Har­vey and Carl Nixon, saw their ini­tial tar­get of £500 passed within two hours of the event be­ing launched. The sum of £4,000 was raised over the two-day event but even that was dwarfed by the fi­nal sum of £11,097.50, a cheque for which Alec and Carl are pic­tured pre­sent­ing to Nurse Karen at the Neona­tal Unit of New­cas­tle upon Tyne’s Royal Vic­to­ria In­fir­mary.
