Over this past weekend, our Purchasing and Project Manager Paul Cook took part in the Crusader Mossy Match; an annual angling event for charity, which took place in Bedfordshire.
The event was a real success, everyone enjoyed themselves but we were all gunning for the cup and took it very seriously. The conditions were very hot, with high air pressure, this combined with sixteen other anglers made the fishing particularly hard. I managed to take the lead halfway into the session and stayed there until the end.
During the competition I used my own homemade baits and various fishing techniques to raise the catch rate but persisting with my usual tactics seemed to do the trick.
I was lost for words when the trophy was handed over and I am looking forward to taking part again next year.

We at Woodlore are delighted to now be supporting Children with Cancer UK as our chosen charity to help with their excellent work fighting the UK’s biggest child killer.
Children with Cancer was set up in 1987, following Eddie and Marion O’Gorman’s devastating loss of not one, but two children, Paul and Jean within the same year to cancer. Shortly after Jean passed away, Eddie and Marion met Diana, Princess of Wales. She was deeply moved by the double tragedy and she personally helped to establish this charity. Children with Cancer aim to improve survival rates and quality of survival in young cancer patients and to find and reduce the causes of cancer by funding research, raising awareness, and helping families as part of their work.
We are very much looking forward to working with the team at our chosen charity as a corporate partner well into the future and hope that we are able to make a small difference to some of the children’s lives who are battling with childhood cancer.
