A cheque was handed to Nick Yonge last week for £2,871.10 from angler donations made when booking their fishing through the FishTweed site.
The money will be used by TweedStart, an initiative aimed at encouraging participation in natural history and game angling throughout the Tweed catchment. TweedStart’s Angling Development Officer is Eoin Fairgrieve – read more.
Total donations so far from FishTweed anglers since it’s inception has now reached over £50,000, which is really quite something.
I do hope that the RTC will make sure that this valuable donation is once again made as public as possible, not only to show their thanks and gratitude to Tweed anglers, but to encourage anglers to book their fishing via FishTweed so we can continue to grow donations for the RTC.
