Tour De Branches

For those of you that either followed our Tour de Branches charity event on social media or came to visit a participating store to cheer them on, we, here at Angling Direct would love to thank-you for your support.

For those that may be unaware, last month, all our Angling Direct stores and even the head office took part in a fundraiser for Angling Projects, a charity aimed at young people, hoping to get them hooked on fishing! The aim was to cycle the distances between stores on a static bicycle.

We had some wonderful feedback from our team members that participated, with a real team ethos created, encouraging those doubting their physical ability to get on the bike and have a go!

The AD team members did great, all cycling a total of 1,295 miles! Thanks to those that donated, participated in the riding of one of the bikes and shared the event socially, as we managed to raise a figure of £8,000.00.

A cheque presentation to Les Webber, Angling Projects took place in October at the head office of Angling Direct as well as a celebration of the team at the head office site that were proud to have collectively raised an amazing amount for the charity.

As well as the cycling event, we also had a giveaway of a donated Shimano UK bike, courtesy of Madison Cycles. The Genesis Coix De Fer 10 Road bike which has an RRP of £1,100.00 was a prize to the lucky winner who entered the draw by simply donating a minimum of £2.00 to the Just Giving page.

Once again, many thanks for your kind donations and support during this event.
