Fund-raiser for military veterans

A fund-raising angling event is aiming to reel in cash for a charity which supports military veterans.

Chatton Trout Fishery will be hosting the event next month, in aid of Fishing for Heroes.

The charity was founded in 2009.

Based in Derby, it is a nationwide charity which aims to help Forces personnel who are suffering from emotional issues after the horrors of active service.

The event is being held on Saturday, April 27.

Registration is at noon and fishing runs from 1pm to 5pm.

Price of entry is £25, which includes four hours of angling and a hog roast.

As well as the fishing, there will also be a raffle and an auction.
