Fishing fun supports Children's Hospice South West

A group of City fishing fans have helped raise more than £2,700 for Children's Hospice South West.

The Bristol City Fishing Team went head to head with a group of Bristol Rovers fans in the Divvy Cup at Acorn Carp Fishery.

Fishing started at 6pm on Friday, with family events held throughout the weekend, including a raffle and BBQ.

Scott Murray and charity fundraiser Olly Slym were on hand to award the trophies on Sunday.

It was confirmed the teams raised £2,787.49 for the Bristol-based children's charity.

Caring for over 500 families across the South West of England, CHSW provide care for children with life-limiting conditions and their whole family. The care ranges from respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care and end of life care.

Charlton Farm is one of three hospices operated by CHSW, with the trio costing £9m to keep running each year. Just 17 per cent of their funding comes from the Government, so they rely heavily on generous donations and fundraising.
