£10,000 donated to British Disabled Angling Association

Matchroom Charitable Foundation was delighted to continue it’s support of the British Disabled Angling Association with a £10,000. The funds contributed to the BDAA’s “Classroom Project.” which saw the build of a fully accessible classroom able to offer a fully inclusive learning experience for anyone with an interest in fishing.

It can provide all year-round shelter from the elements for individuals who will be using it for indoor teaching sessions on fishing equipment, fly tying, fish management, entomology, lunch breaks, toilet facilities, boat safety and the countryside code. It will also be used as a training centre for anyone who would like to volunteer as a BDAA buddy, plus a training centre for angling awards including the Angling Trust level 1 and 2 coaching assessments.

Troy Chadwick, BDAA Operations Manager said

“On behalf of the British Disabled Angling Association and Ladybower Fisheries, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Matchroom Sport Charitable Foundation for your generous donation of £10,000. Your support is invaluable as we endeavour to enhance the angling experience for individuals, schools and groups with disabilities.

Your contribution has directly impacted the construction of the dedicated fishing education room at Ladybower Fisheries, providing a safe and inclusive space for disabled anglers to learn and engage in the art of fishing. This initiative will not only foster a sense of community but also empower individuals to pursue their passion for angling despite any physical limitations.

Your commitment to promoting accessibility and inclusion within the angling community is truly commendable. We are deeply grateful for your unwavering support. Together, we are making a significant difference in the lives of disabled anglers, enabling them to experience the joys of fishing in a supportive environment.”

The British Disabled Angling Association (BDAA) was founded in 1996 to develop opportunities for disabled people of all ages and abilities to access the sport of fishing in the UK.
