Countryside and wellbeing
through fishing after cancer
Castaway is a new programme from The Countryside Alliance Foundation which supports men and women affected by all types of cancer, to improve their physical and mental health through ongoing engagement with fishing and the countryside.
Castaway’s one-day fishing programme caters for those who have finished treatment and offers an introduction to fishing, and the wellbeing benefits of the Countryside, in a fun and supportive environment.
The programme has a local and community focus, introducing participants to fishing, healthy eating, local produce and community activities. Participants will be able to share experiences and make friends.
The debut one-day event took take place at Sportfish at Theale, near Reading, on Saturday 18th September 2021, in partnership with leading countryside retailers Farlow’s. Please sign up to the Fishing for Schools newsletter ere to be kept updated on future Castaway events and news.
