Kids is a won­der­ful or­gan­i­sa­tion that sup­ports chil­dren with spe­cial needs and their par­ents by pro­vid­ing group ses­sions where the chil­dren can learn and play to­gether, and par­ents can get sup­port out­side the usual NHS pro­vi­sion.

Over the week­end of 20th, 21st, and 22nd July, New­bridge Lakes played hosts to a Char­ity Fish-in, or­gan­ised by Fishin­gad­viser Events, to raise money for Kids. BBC Ra­dio Hum­ber­side broad­cast their 12 till 3 af­ter­noon show from the lake-side as the match got un­der­way and the first fish was caught. There were sev­eral fish landed to just over 22lb overnight and the match was go­ing well.

The lake was rested for a cou­ple of hours Satur­day af­ter­noon, time for some so­cial­is­ing, and a lovely BBQ or­gan­ised by lake own­ers Michelle and Lance Bram­ley. Brian Skoyles or­gan­ised a mini com­pe­ti­tion whilst the food was be­ing cooked, an op­por­tu­nity for plenty of laughs and even more ban­ter – then it was back to the match.

Sun­day morn­ing and ev­ery­one gath­ered around the car­a­van for the pre­sen­ta­tions con­ducted by Bev Clif­ford from Carp­world. Two awards stood out – the big­gest fish of the week­end caught by Tina Brown with a fish of 22lb 3oz and the over­all win­ners for the sec­ond year run­ning, Danny Mccann and Ge­off Bird. Danny and Ge­off had a grand to­tal of 74lb 7oz from a five fish catch. Well done to all who took part and es­pe­cially to Tina, Ge­off and Danny.

Brian Skoyles re­ported: “As my grand­son at­tends Kids ses­sions with his par­ents, I can per­son­ally vouch for how good a job they do, but like many or­gan­i­sa­tions they rely on char­i­ta­ble do­na­tions to sup­ple­ment the costs of some of the ser­vices they pro­vide. This has been a great event su­perbly or­gan­ised by Martin Cred­land, and Andrea and Syd­ney Meg­son. The at­mos­phere from start to fin­ish has been a com­bi­na­tion of se­ri­ous fish­ing and fun so­cial­is­ing, all with a sense of pur­pose, to raise as much as pos­si­ble for the Kids or­gan­i­sa­tion. I have been hon­oured to have taken part... Events don’t come much bet­ter than this.

“For my part, I’d like to thank ev­ery­one for their in­volve­ment. Martin, Andrea and Syd­ney for their or­gan­i­sa­tion, Michelle and Lance for be­ing the per­fect hosts. To Bev Clif­ford for pre­sent­ing the prizes on the Sun­day. To all the com­pa­nies and in­di­vid­u­als who spon­sored the event in­clud­ing Daiwa Sports, Nu­tra­baits,

Carp­world, Hull Par­ti­cles, Acorn Wood, CCW and many more that pro­vided loads of raf­fle prizes, etc. Fi­nally, to all the an­glers from var­i­ous parts of the UK for get­ting in­volved and con­tribut­ing so much... Top job ev­ery­one.”
