Time to make space for your all your new fishing gear before Christmas!
We are collecting any fishing gear for the Cast North West Charity for the LAST TIME as a final Christmas gift!
The centre was based around using angling as a tool to develop respect and self esteem and break down inter-generational barriers.
As the charity started to expand it was evident that young people were showing an interest to develop knowledge and learn new skills. CAST developed an education package which embedded literacy and numeracy around the sport of angling. This offered a safe environment in a tranquil setting creating a therapeutic environment for people of all disabilities to re-engage into education but also develop work based learning skills which diverts young people away from anti social behaviour in partnership with the Youth Offending Team.
Partridge supported the Charity this week by purchasing our lovely winter hanging baskets from the Charity Garden Centre planted by the youths in the program, it was amazing to see how much care they had taken creating each basket and how proud they were when they showed them to us.
If you are able to donate anything from a few floats, hooks to old rods or boxes (please no broken or unusable tackle) it will be much appreciated by all at the Charity, or if you would like to support them by visiting the fantastic garden centre or cafe have a look at their website for more info!
We will be collecting donated tackle at Partridge Lakes until 9th December 2018!!
