What WE Do

We Are A Part of the National Masonic Fishing Charity

The East Kent Branch is part of the National Masonic Fishing Charity. The branch operates independently, conducts its own fundraising and operates its own events. The national body directs general policy, provides Environmental Agency Temporary Licence, Health & Safety equipment, Risk Assessment guidance, insurance cover and CRB checking for helpers.

Our Work – who benefits?

Anyone aged 11 – 18 years, with physical, learning or behavioural difficulties, the disadvantaged or those who have suffered trauma, are the groups who primarily benefit from the interactive fishing and countryside experience provided.

The experience enables these people to gain in confidence and to meet new challenges. It helps disadvantaged young people to renew their confidence in meeting others and interacting with them. It helps those who are physically disabled to participate in sport and experience something that may otherwise be unavailable to them.

Many Schools and Centres who cater for special needs pupils use the day as a basis for a curriculum project and to provide a focus for sporting achievement for those who are unable to partake in established team and individual sports.

“One of the absolute joys of helping with the Masonic Fishing Charity is the opportunity to work directly in the community and to witness first-hand the positive effects of your labours”.
