Good day lads over the weekend i were watching the childrens in need on bbc one and i were touch by some of the stories that i were close to almost bringing tears to my eyes . I couldnt believe the amount of kids that are suffering from all sorts of life threatening difficulties whether its cancer,brain injuries,being homeless and suffering from other illnesses so i thought why not some of the carp anglers in the midlands come together at a good fisheries in the midlands and do a 24 or 48 hours session for the children in need charity for each fish each angler catch he pays £3-£5 quid for each fish you catch if you havent catch anything then you still donate something its all for a good cause The children in need charity lets support it

first thing is get a list of peeps who are definatly gonna turn up. then work out a date that suits everyone.

when you have that info you can find a neutral venue to suit the numbers and date you got, if you can make it so everyone travels about the same distance thats better. you need to leave plenty of time to acrue sponsors and arrange time off work if needed too. :wink: have fun.

you can put me down ok

A lot of fundraisers are set up so each participant taps friends and aquaintances to sponsor them, ie: in a fun run people sign on to sponsor a runner for so much per mile he does, and assumes the worst is the whole distance. If each participating angler gets sponsors to pledge x amount of money for each pound of carp they land during the session there's more money raised. You can hit up the pub, shops etc and maybe make posters and put them up in those places and leave a sheet for the sponsors you can pick up prior to the event. Of course it's a good idea to check with the charity and see if they're in favour of your plans before doing anything.

After seeing how much time and effort it took Gary to arrange his charity social a couple of years ago , and I personally arranged one this year at Horseshoe ( non charity ) I think realistically your need well over a year to organise a charity social , to make it worthwhile for the chosen charity .

Well it could be a possiblity we can arrange it for next year what you think
