Burtree Charity Fishing Match
On Sunday 2 September Allan Gilyeat very kindly organised the annual charity fishing match.
Anglers from across the region met at Burtree House Caravan Park and Fishery at Crakehall near Bedale for their annual charity match, with sponsorship, donations and a raffle. Over £1000 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Steve Barker from Hutton Magna won the match with 23lb+ of silverfish and received keep-nets 2nd and 3rd places went to Peter Milner (Wakefield) and Gav Atkinson (RAF Leeming) also with nets of silverfish.
Top fundraiser Neil Collins from Richmond also received keep-nets.
Organisers would like to thank Andrew and Angela Shield for their continued support, the use of the pond and always putting on a good BBQ, Pat Hardy for organising the raffle also to the anglers their families, friends and work colleagues who always give generously.
