Amble angling competition raising money for Hospice

Posted on 01st July 2013 | in Community

Amble Angling Centre is encouraging people to put on their best fishing hats and boots and take a trip down to Amble Harbour for the annual Bob White Memorial Competition in aid of St Oswald’s Hospice.

Now in its 8th year, the competition was set up in memory of Bob White, the previous owner of the Centre, who died at St Oswald’s Hospice in 2005.

The boat fishing competition takes place between 8am and 4pm on Saturday 13th July and registration opens at 7am. Entry costs £10 per person and all abilities are welcome – you don’t have to be Bob Nudd or Matt Hayes to take part or to have a ‘reel’ good time, so why not give it a go?

A presentation for the winner will take place in the Schooner Inn from 5.30pm.

Lyn Cain, fundraiser at St Oswald’s said:

“We need to raise 6.5million each year to continue to provide our services to North East families so the support of Amble Angling Centre year in year out is invaluable.  Good luck to all the entrants and thank you for your support.”

St Oswald’s Hospice provides specialist care for North East adults, young people and children with life limiting conditions.  No charge is made for the services provided ensuring hospice care is available to all.
