FishTweed were delighted to hand over a cheque for £3,000 to Nick Yonge, Director at the Tweed Foundation, on Friday 7th February 2014.
The money was raised through anglers giving donations when making bookings on the FishTweed site and will be used towards the Foundations extensive programme of biological research, monitoring and habitat enhancement.
The Foundation is regarded as being at the forefront of bringing a more professional, scientific approach to salmonid management. Mark CockBurn – FishPal CEO – said “Equally, the office has been sending cheques to river boards across the country from donations made by anglers fishing their rivers. River Trusts and their boards do a fantastic job supporting their local rivers and at a time when funding is being cut it is great to be able to help out through the FishPal group of sites with angler donations.”
