Anglers raise over £700 for Help for Heroes charity at Redbridge Lakes.
A charity match held at Redbridge Lakes, Essex has raised over £700 for Help for Heroes.
The event saw over 30 anglers turn out to the in-form silver fish venue, although both waters, Cuthbert and Daisy lakes, delivered hard sport on the day.
Changing tactics to keep up with the fish, in the end it was a bag of 34lb 12oz caught by Mark Scott which won the day, with his net including chub, bream, tench and gudgeon.
1st Mark Scott 34lb 12oz
2nd Neal Briscoe 16lb 3oz
Joint 3rd Peter Jordon 16lb 2oz
Joint 3rd Chrissie T 16lb 2oz
In total £710 was raised, with 100percent of the proceeds going to the extremely worthy charity.
The event was organised by Joy Morris, a mother of four who has a son in the Rifles regiment soon to be deployed to Afghanistan, and Redbridge Lakes owner Gordon Bullock.
