Millington’s Tackle Charity Fishing Day

Millington’s Tackle in Chorley recently held a brilliant charity fishing day for BBC Children in Need at Whitmore Fisheries in Lancashire.

Ian and Stuart Humphrey, Neil Spedding and Alan Ashworth were fortunate to win an auction for a day’s fishing with England stars Alan Scotthorne and Stuart Conroy. They were soon catching fish on a mixture of pole and feeder tactics and picking up plenty of tips from the duo.

The event was also broadcast live on BBC Radio Lancashire on John ‘Gilly’ Gilmore’s show where Matt Shaw from Millington’s hosts a regular fishing slot with Gilly. BBC Radio Lancashire listeners raised along with the lads’ bid a fantastic £50,000 total for Pudsey’s Children in Need.

Thanks to Whitmore Fisheries for holding the event and special thanks to Alan, Stuart and Matt from Millington’s Tackle for organising the event. A great day for a very worthy cause!

Also, we have just heard Matt is doing it all again for this year’s Children in Need.
