The Big Fish – A Big Catch for Milton Keynes

Tue 06 Sep 2011

Eastenders' heart throb  Scott Maslen, 
a keen angler when he's not in Albert Square attended The Big Fish family fun day at Great Linford Lakes on Sunday.  After spending a couple of hours on the lake side fishing, Scott presented the prizes to the anglers who won the 48 hour fishing competition which was celebrated with the massive family 
fun day. 

The event is the brainchild of Dom Morgan who having lost his daughter Jodie aged 12 last year, wanted to find a way to raise money for the Sick Children's Trust and Addenbrooks Hospital, which gave him and his family so much support. Great Linford Lakes will be the venue for The Big Fish for the next four years, generously donated by David and Nicola Marle and Dom plans to make it bigger and better next year.  "I am overwhelmed at the support given to us in our first year here by businesses and the people of Milton Keynes and  wish to thank them for their much valued support.  Fishing brings so many added  benefits to those who take it up as a sport  and I look forward to welcoming more children from Milton Keynes at our kids fishing camp at next year's Big Fish.”
