  • The 2011 Cancer Support Open - Makins Fishery – Thursday 16 June 2011

    Fishing4life is proud and happy to announce the inaugural Cancer Support Open in aid of Cancer Research UK, Macmillan and Marie Curie to be held at Warwickshire’s Makins Fishery on Thursday 16 June 2011.

    The event, which features a 120 peg open match, aims to raise thousands of pounds in much needed funds for these three great charities.

    The match itself, which will see the winner walk away with a clutch of great prizes as well as the prestigious title of 2011 Cancer Support Open Champion, will be open to all anglers and promises to offer a memorable day’s sport.

    Tickets for the match, which go on sale soon, will be £15 each. However, a condition of entry is that all participants raise a minimum of £100 individual sponsorship each.

    100% of all money raised through tickets and sponsorship will be going straight to the supported charities with all costs being met by the organisers and supporters themselves.

    A website will be going live once tickets go on sale. For any enquiries, including sponsoring or supporting the event, please email [email protected]

    Please look out for further announcements online and in the press.

            Hi nick

            Has it been decided which Phase and lakes are going to be in and how it will be pegged?

            Cheers Dave

              Hi Dave,

              no, not as yet.

              A number of factors will play a part in that, not least of all how many tickets we sell and how the waters are all fishing closer to the time.

                id say Phase 2 at that time of year.
                Spread pegs over a few lakes to give room- shouldnt be a problem mid week.
                ill have a chat to the lads and see if they fancy it.
                Its a good cause and i defo fancy a bash although an overnight stay is always the best bet for us fishing Makins.

                Hope to be in touch soon.
