Executive Fly Fishing Day – Saturday 10th October 2020. Park Lake, Surrey GU5 9JA

At last – we can meet again!   Come and enjoy this wonderful day as a treat after being in isolation for so long! This year’s annual Kids for Kids’ Executive Fly Fishing Day will take place at Park Lake, Albury on 10th October. Book now as I am sure it will sell out quickly!  Who wouldn’t want to go fishing this year!

We really are fishing for goats (well, not literally!)  – goats that will give their valuable milk for children who are hungry in Darfur!  We need as many as we can get.  The need is huge.  Do join us, it’s a real treat.  Park Lake is utterly beautiful, and ours for the day.   The secluded lake will be stocked with rainbow trout and if you have never tasted trout straight from the water to your plate than you have no idea how delicious it is.   Of course, you will have to catch it first!

Places for the Full Day and Half-day (AM or PM) sessions are now available to Book Online or by completing our Order Form.  Tickets are limited to ensure everyone has enough space on the banks to really enjoy fishing as it should be enjoyed – so do book early!  Enjoy an exclusive day of fly fishing on the Duke of Northumberland’s private lake in Surrey.  A special day for experienced fishermen and total beginners alike!  Tuition by qualified trainers (if needed) for beginners along with all tackle will be provided.  Delicious refreshments as listed below will provided throughout the day.

 

Ticket Options:

Full Day tickets  (9.30am to dusk) @ £120 each (min. donation)  to include breakfast, morning coffee & home made cakes,  lunch with wine and beer, and finally afternoon tea (more home made cakes!).  All drinks available throughout.

AM session only  (9.30 am to 12:30pm, including lunch) @ £75 each (min. donation) to include breakfast, morning coffee & home made cakes and lunch with wine and beer.  All drinks available throughout.

PM session only  (12.30 pm lunch ’til dusk) @ £75 each (min. donation) to include lunch with wine and beer, afternoon tea with home made cakes.  All drinks available throughout.

“I hesitate to ask, but if you would like to add something extra as an additional donation it would really help.  Without our events earlier this year – especially the Ambassadors’ Ball – our donations have fallen just when we are needed most, but I know life has not been easy for anyone this year.”  Patricia Parker MBE Founder.

N.B. Children (minimum age 10)  need to be accompanied by a fully paying adult.   Because of the limit of space on the banks children also have to be full price.  Sunglasses or glasses, and hats ideally with a peak, must be worn by everyone. Health and safety is our first concern but you are advised that you fish at your own risk.

 

COVID-19 Updates:

To ensure we can comply with social distancing measures we will be having fewer people join us at the lake this year. If the current government restrictions are still in place by September 25th we will be providing individual picnic boxes to each of our guests to ensure everyone is safe. This comes at an added expense for us, so we will need to add a supplement of £10 per head at that time and will email each guest with details. Thank you for your understanding.

This is the only in-person event we will be able to hold this year due to COVID-19 and because of that, our funds have dropped drastically whilst the need in Darfur has more than trebled. Please can you support our Appeal for Soap to prevent the virus from spreading?  Malnutrition is a huge problem across Darfur, leaving people with weak immune systems unable to fight the virus. Our appeal for soap is massive, with the need to raise over a third of last year’s income to supply five bars of soap to each family in the 105 Kids for Kids villages. In fact because of the cancellation of all our other live events, the amount needed for this appeal could be the entire amount we raise this year.  Do donate and share the appeal. Thank you.
