Charity asks for help reeling up fishing gear
A new fishing club was started during the lockdown by people living in that of Emmaus The Cambridge site has proven to be so popular that it is appealing for donations of additional equipment.
The association offers former homeless and homeless people a place to live as long as they need it.
In exchange, the “companions” work on the site in the shop which sells second-hand goods but for 6 months, the shop has been closed.
It was then that the idea of embarking on a new hobby came to occupy people, and one of those new hobbies was the fishing club.
But the club is a victim of its own success. More and more people want to register but there is not enough equipment for everyone.
“People have shown interest, but unfortunately we haven’t received any fishing rods because the store has been closed,” said Jon Cook, who has been a driving force behind the club.
“We thought that if we had more equipment we could encourage more people to go fishing as a hobby because it has been shown to improve people’s mental health,” he said.
If you have old fishing rods, the fishing club of Emmaus site in Landbeach are looking forward to hearing from you.
