Fishing for Goats brings in big reward!
Saturday the 13th of October marked our annual Fly Fishing Event: Fishing for Goats! – and what an extraordinary day it was. We were blessed with summer conditions, still waters, blue skies, and absolutely beautiful for October. Although this did not make the fishing very easy, everyone had a fantastic time and have said they want to come again next year! Early warning for next year’s fishing date – Saturday 12th October 2019!
Despite not receiving any sponsorship this year, our guests enjoyed themselves so much that many donated even more than the ticket price, leading us to raise the most funds ever for our fishing day – a fantastic £1,988.51! This amount has enabled us to provide 30 more Urgent Need Packages of sorghum flour and seed, plus 12 goats of course, to families still at risk of starvation in Darfur. This has been one of the worst year’s to date and we are so grateful to our wonderful supporters for helping us to provide emergency help to people suffering the famine. We are not an emergency organisation, but when no one else is helping families in rural Darfur villages we have had no choice – we cannot let people or animals starve.
So grateful to our wonderful fishing instructors, the Surrey Committee for organising the event, and chefs that provided all our fishermen with delicious breakfast, lunch, and kept them supplied with tea and coffee throughout the day. Thank you so much to all who joined us! Please spread the word about our annual Fly Fishing event, and make sure you get some friends on board to join you next October.
