Danny hopes to turn the match into a yearly event for Northern anglers

A fishing match held at a venue in Cheshire has been deemed a complete success by organisers, with hundreds of pounds raised for a cancer charity.

The match held at Meadow View Fisheries in Lymm, was hosted by Danny Fenson, who hopes to turn it into a yearly event for Northern anglers.

“In the end we had 19 anglers attend the event. This ranged from experienced match anglers to people that have never fished a match before,” says Danny.

“We have now raised over £700 for a pancreatic cancer charity. The money raised will help fight this awful disease."

Danny revealed why the charity is so close to his heart…

“I lost my dad in early February this year to the disease and as you can imagine it hit our family quite hard.

“So I decided to arrange a charity fishing match in his honour. We used to go fishing together when I was younger. last year I took fishing back up again and wanted to take him one last time but it was too late.”
