Big hearted anglers raising vital funds for Lindsey Lodge Hospice are reeling in the cash after holding a fundraising fishing match.

The anglers representing Phillips 66 Humber Refinery in Immingham have raised more than £1,000 so far. A group of 17 anglers took part in the annual John Parker Memorial Trophy Fishing Match at Helmstead Lakes in Immingham.

The event sees anglers draw for fishing positions on the lake, before their four hour competition where the aim is to catch as many fish as possible, and the person who catches the heaviest weight in fish is the winner.

Lindsey Lodge Hospice is run as an independent charity to provide free of charge, specialist care to North Lincolnshire people with any progressive life-limiting illness, and supports their family and carers during illness and into bereavement.

Hospice fundraiser Andy Hirst said: “There’s lots of friendly rivalry at this competition and it’s always a good evening out.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to Tim Goldby for organising this event and all the anglers for their continued support.”
