Cast for Life target raised

Anglers are being urged to raise money for Cancer Research UK with the promise of tackle donations from Korda.

The Cast for Life campaign raised more than £12,000 last year and is hoping to be even bigger this time. The aim is for anglers to raise at least £500 by staging an angling event such as a carp match or weekend get-together.

Event that raise more than £250 will be given a selection of Korda or Guru tackle worth £250 to offer as auction lots or raffle prizes.

Tom Burns, Korda’s community manager, said: “This is the third year Korda has supported Cast For Life and we’ve successfully raised between £10,000 and £12,000 a year. This time we’d really like to break £15,000, but we can only do this with the support of lots of kind-hearted anglers.”
