Sportsman Angling Club raised £520 for the East Anglian Children's Hospice through a memorial charity shield match in memory of Mark Alsop, who was club secretary for some years. He died of cancer last year.

The match was held in July at St Benets Abbey on the River Bure and won by Martin Carpenter.

Receiving the cheque is Mark's wife Hayley and their children Shannon and Jordan, pictured with Sportsman AC members left to right Mick Hannant (treasurer), Martin Manning (chairman) and committee member Karl Hodgins.
