Today, on the first day of the fishing season, The Claire House Club Challenge is paying for a day at Claire House.

Colin Cook, his family and all of the Claire House Club Challenge team would like to thank everyone who has kindly supported the Challenge since it began in 2012.

Every year the competition gets bigger, and every year we are blown away by the generosity of the anglers, their families and friends, local fisheries, businesses and supporters.

In the 2018 competition, 12 teams took part, with 108 anglers fishing. In total an incredible £17,561 was raised.

Colin and his family raise this money in memory of their beautiful daughter Ellie.

Colin said “Ellie spent many special days at Claire House in the 18 months before she died, days full of fun and laughter. As a family we have precious memories of the time we spent together. By fundraising with the support of family and friends, we are helping to ensure that other families get to make memories with their children”.

Thanks again for all of your support.
