Amazing feedback for The Masonic Fishing Charity and a chance to get involved!
It can be a challenge for those with special needs to enjoy the benefits of the countryside and feel a sense of achievement. That’s why The Masonic Fishing Charity (MTSFC) exists! They aim to bring an interactive fishing and countryside experience to those who might not normally have such an opportunity. This is a great example of how the core Masonic principles of integrity, respect and charity – as well as care and concern for others, are put into practice.
And when they receive great feedback from those they’ve helped, it makes it all the more worthwhile.
The charity team were delighted to receive this card from the pupils and staff of Meadowfield School in Sittingbourne. They are regular visitors to MTSFC events and enjoyed a great day of coarse fishing at Chart Fisheries in April this year.
Warren Muckell of the organising team said: “We were absolutely delighted to receive the card. We have all become good friends with the teachers over the years. It’s really great to see the kids coming back again and again because they enjoy it so much!
“We’ll be showing it off proudly at our next event in July!”
The MTSFC team are looking for volunteers to help run their upcoming events to and assist as “casters.” Warren would like to hear from you if you can help on either 14th July at Manor Fisheries in Headcorn, or 22nd September at Longshaw Fisheries at Sturry.
“You do not need to be an expert fisherman, just someone who can dangle a maggot and have a bit of fun too. Any adult can help whether they are a freemason or not. So it’s a great opportunity to introduce a friend to the work that we do to support our local communities.” Warren added.
