West Kent Masonic Trout & Salmon Fishing Charity

 

FREEMASONRY

Catching a Smile!

The Masonic Trout and Salmon Fishing Charity (MTSFC) is a registered charity set up in 1999  and its sole purpose is to bring a countryside and fishing experience to disabled and disadvantaged people, particularly children.This is achieved by organising fishing events up and down the country, not just trout or salmon but coarse fishing as well; to which participants are invited from special needs schools and other similar institutions.

Not only is it an interesting fishing experience but also provides a mentally stimulating occasion and an opportunity that could otherwise be denied to the participants. It is not just about fishing however, as the experiences are used extensively when the children return to school and the many wall displays, IT projects, models, paintings and web pages are testimony to this as well as the memories that are constantly recalled. Many of the teachers and carers have been amazed at the effect fishing can have on people with behavioural or emotional difficulties and sometimes the experience has had a long lasting beneficial effect on them.
