I would firstly like to thank all of you who came to our fundraising quiz night on Friday 6th June, West Staff Village Hall. I would especially like to thank you all for your generosity in providing food and raffle prizes. A big thank you to Bryan Sennett, Chairman of the Dorchester Fishing Club and John Aplin who kindly donated two days fishing which we auctioned.
I am pleased to let you know that we raised £511. Included in this figure was some generous donations that I was asked to use specifically for the Dorset Branch to purchase some additional equipment that we require. To that end, I have purchased some priests and de-barbing pliers, leaving a balance of £371 which we will forward to SW Fishing for Life who will use the funding to support us in the future.
SW Fishing for Life has previously supported us in purchasing set up equipment including 6 rods, nets, reels, lines and some safety equipment. The Dorset Branch is very pleased to be able to have raised some funds that are held centrally for our collective use. We are continually looking to raise funds to provide more equipment and also to pay for hire of facilities.
Once again thank you so much for coming to our first fund raising event. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope that you did too.
With very best wishes
FFL Dorset Branch Chair/ Coordinator
