Fancy dress fishing
23/08/19 - 25/08/19
Welcome to our first charity event! Alongside as many members of our community as possible we will be fishing in fancy dress (funny costumes, outfits etc) to raise money for charity! Our event will run from the 23rd of August 2019 to the 25th. We want as many people as possible to get involved with us, and doing so couldn't be easier! You can fish whenever you want over the course of the weekend, and wherever you want! Whether its at your local fishing spot, or you go somewhere special, we want you to participate!
This will be a great way to raise money for charity, raise awareness and have great fun doing so! We have chosen to raise money for "Worldwide Cancer Research". This is because cancer is something that has affected or will affect us all one way or another in our lives, and what a great way to make a difference through doing something we love! We want to see all your pictures and there will be prizes available and competitions throughout! Be sure to use #bongsfishing and #bongsfishingcharity to feature on our page and website!
We assure you the money we raise will be going to a good cause. Over the past four decades "Worldwide cancer research" have helped support some of the biggest breakthroughs in cancer treatment including the very promising recent immunotherapy advancements.
All over the world there are scientists waiting for funding which will transport their research to the next level. Without this funding they are unable to progress and unable to reach the answers only research can unlock.
This charity funds projects in the worlds best research institutions on some of the world's most diverse and unexpected projects, from world-renowned specialist to up and coming talent.
