CHARITY FISHING Organisers of a charity fishing match in tribute to a Caister teenage angler have handed over a cheque to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

Keith Hooker organised the event which took place at Snakes Meadow Fisheries, near Great Yarmouth, in memory of Matthew Eckett, which raised an impressive £600. A total of £550 was raised on the day with a further £50 being donated by Ed Wharton, of Winsford Hall Farm. Jessica Hiscocks, EACH community fund-raising cCo-ordinator for North Norfolk and Norwich, said: “We would like to thank Keith, everyone at Snakes Meadow Fisheries and all the anglers who took part and helped to make the event such a success. We rely upon voluntary donations for the majority of our income, so fundraising events like these ensure we are able to continue delivering care and support to life-threatened children and their families.”
