Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Hartcliffe & Withywood Angling Club was officially established in April 2007 with the aid of local funding. We offer local youngsters the opportunity to get involved in the sport of angling and enjoy a peaceful and relaxing environment. The aim is to divert young people in deprived areas away from anti-social behaviour, crime, drugs and alcohol misuse. Recently, the club has also been helping disabled people to attend the fishing trips.
Fishing is an excellent pastime for young people as it teaches them to concentrate, to interpret their surroundings, to problem solve and to learn about triumph and disaster. It is something people can do throughout their life in groups or by themselves. It nurtures responsibility and environmental citizenship and has been demonstrated to reduce youth offending. It provides opportunities for young and old, able bodied and physically challenged, to join in a shared activity which fosters strong community spirit.
Any help you can donate to this project for a new mini bus would be greatly appreciated by not only Mike Robbins (Chairman) but all the members of the club
For more information on how to the club, please contact Mike Robbins 01179782557/07884145098. Thank you very much
