A FISHERMEN has organised a programme of events specifically designed for children with illnesses and disabilities.

Charlie Hillaby will host his Fishing For Henry days in June, September and November at Lifted Lakes, in Colchester.

The events give young people the chance to enjoy a relaxing fishing daytrip while raising awareness of illnesses and disabilities in children.

Mr Hillaby said: “I believe fish can help with a child’s mindset and I take pride in putting these days on free of charge for all families.”
