Collection for CAST NW!

Posted on


Partridge Lakes Fishery had a little trip out to the incredible Cast North West in Wigan last week and we were AMAZED by what is being achieved over there, and we want to help!!
Cast is a Charity based around using angling as a tool to develop respect and self esteem in young people to divert them away from anti social behaviour whilst gaining qualifications to help them move on to the next chapter of their life!

**Partridge will be starting a COLLECTION for any fishing gear that you no longer need, whether it be a discorger..float..pack of hooks..old rod or pole..PLEASE could you be kind enough to help these kids out with some simple gear to fish with??!
If you have anything at all to donate, please pass it on to a member of the Partridge Lakes staff & we will keep it safe & drop it all off as a gift just before Christmas**

CAST North West offers a safe environment for young people to achieve through the sport of angling.

Many of the young people supported face a number of complex barriers that prevent them from achieving in education or training and are in danger of becoming long term unemployed and socially and economically excluded.

Cast have now expanded our provision that can provide an assessment of the options available in terms of extending the current operations, diversification in education and alternative income generation. Indoor and outdoor angling is then combined with these outdoor activities to stimulate interest to learn. The now developed horticulture, conservation, fish breeding, aquaponics, agriculture and bespoke woodwork shops complement the existing fishery management qualifications and angling tuition. All the education stems from the angling aspect of the program and allows young people to make options on the desired learning direction.

All literacy and numeracy is embedded into the portfolio work completed and compliments the practical side of the project. This enables young people to complete task to develop work base learning skills along with a good work ethic.
In addition to the various qualifications and accredited certificates the young people have the opportunity to gain, they will also learn key life skills including confidence, respect, patience and perseverance.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and if you are in a position to help then this worthy cause, it would be much appreciated by all of the young anglers at Cast NW!
