Howarth Makes a Splash in The Community

National builders’ merchant Howarth Timber and Building Supplies continues to make a splash in the community, after sponsoring a fishing event for people with disabilities in South Yorkshire.
The skills event, organised by the Masonic Fishing Charity (MTSFC), was held at the Delves fishery in Thorne and saw a group of volunteers team up with 15 people from the local area to take part in an angling competition.

The Masonic Fishing Charity aims to bring a one-to-one interactive fishing and countryside experience to people with special needs.

Those who took part in the day were from Doncaster Inclusive Centre for Excellence (DICE), which provides activities, events and services for people with disabilities. Two residents from Harry Priestly House care home in Thorne also took part in the event.

Howarth, which has a branch on South Parade in the town, provided refreshments and an enjoyable lunch at the event to show its support for the local community. Certificates were given to everyone who took part, while anglers were also presented with medals for their efforts.

John Brandon, Howarth’s branch manager in Thorne, said: “At Howarth, we’re proud to have supported this unique event by providing refreshments and by organising for the ponds to be used without charge, courtesy of Peter Richardson, the Delves ponds bailiff.

“We have supported many local organisations and were delighted to support this fantastic event too. It gave me immense pleasure to represent Howarth for this most worthy cause”

Collin Middleton, secretary of the Masonic Fishing Charity, said: “We would like to personally thank Howarth and our other sponsors as well as the volunteers and the catering staff at the Delves cafe for all their hard work in making it an enjoyable and memorable day.”
