Rob is the Chairman of the Somerset branch of the Masonic Fishing Charity and also a member of Wraxall Lodge. This donation was used to sponsor a fishing event that day, The sponsored event enabled a group of pupils and staff from Baytree SEN School in Weston Super Mare to enjoy a day of fishing.

Whilst the Somerset Team took all the children course fishing headed up by Mark Burton the Caster Manager, Rob Collins lead the way on the fly fishing for trout, every child caught and successfully  landed their own trout, and afterwards lunch was provided which was a BBQ with lots of fruit, and soft drinks, the children never left empty handed as they all had some fish to take home that they caught on the day, with a certificate and medal – presented by our APGM Richard Winter. All the teachers, support staff and especially the children had a wonderful day. We would all like to thank the MTSFC for all the hard work they do in managing these events around the country as it enables children with complex needs to feel included in sports that would usually be out of reach.
