Charity Challenge

A charity-raising award for the biggest gudgeon caught each month by Society members who have elected to take part in the Challenge. Monthly entrance fee is 1.00 per member with half of the "pot" going to the captor of the biggest gudgeon and the remainder going to the Waterways Chaplaincy. As part of the Workplace Matters charity, they provide support to all vulnerable users of the canal system.

(NB Fish caught in the stretch where the previous month's biggest was caught and in the stretches immediately on either side of that stretch are ineligible.)
