I was so sorry to hear of the passing of our very good friend Mick Rivers. He was a wonderful man and he was a great friend as well.
I will never forget all that he did for me in helping with Cambridge Charity Fund Raisers
Mick was one of the first anglers to join CCFR and was always keen to make a donation through his beloved Royston Angling club.
I never heard an ill word spoken of him. He was kind, compassionate, and a true gentleman. Sadly there are few people like that in the world today.
We will all miss his sense of humour and words that would echo around the lake.
HELLO MY BOY - THEY WILL NEVER SELL ICE CREAMS DRIVING AT THAT SPEED as an ambulance could be heard in the distance with its sirens blasting out.
AND WHO COULD FORGET THE MICK RIVERS DUCK WARBLER TO START AND END ALL OUR MATCHES
I could never repay all that he did for me and CCFR, but I would at least like to do what little I can and in doing so, honour his memory with the introduction of a new award during our fishing series.
We all extend our sympathy to Mick’s sons Shaun and Simon along with the family and let them know how much we share their pain at this sad time.
In Friendship & Sorrow,
Ian Darler and everybody at Cambridge Charity Fund Raisers
They are a local charity and funds raised go directly to help families and people who have been effected by cancer.
During 2019 The Malcolm Whales Foundation were involved in the creation of a new garden area outside the Woodlands Centre at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
The garden is a place for patients and their families to spend some time with their thoughts away from the busy treatment centre.
This year The Malcolm Whales Foundation major project is to help support a refurbishment of the Robert Horrell cancer and wellbeing centre.
Everybody involved with CCFR are pleased help support this venture with the funds raised from the 2020 fishing series held at Rookery Waters, Pidley

The Rampton Fairies and the children of Rampton would like to thank Ian Darler of Cambridge Charity Fundraisers for his donation of 75 children’s activity sets.
These have been distributed around the village and we hope they will provide some entertainment during this difficult time.
The Rampton Fairies are a small Committee of village ladies originally formed to raise money for Christmas lights, who now fund raise around the year to grant ‘wishes’ for the village residents. The money raised from events such as our “Pop Up” Breakfast café and Bingo nights have not only enabled us to light up the village green at Xmas, but also to provide a fortnightly minibus supermarket trip for those without transport, contribute to start-up costs for Rampton Friday Club (the village youth group) and supply, soon to be installed additional facilities at the village hall. Events to foster a community spirit are held for all ages, especially at Christmas, when the Fairies come into their own
The ‘Fairies’ were instrumental in founding the Rampton CareRing to provide village support during the Coronavirus outbreak. The Rampton CareRing, which saw a coming together of the villages 77 Committee and the Village Hall Management team now has a core of 41 volunteers who are able to provide support where it is most needed with tasks such as shopping and prescription collecting. We have also set-up a village milk and newspaper delivery service which we hope we may continue when the crisis has passed.
Unfortunately the Easter egg hunt organised by the 77 Committee for the village had to be postponed, but in true Rampton style the Easter bunny still managed to deliver.
Looking for the Silver lining in these strange times, we as a village are incredibly proud of how everyone, from young to old have pulled together to support one another. Strengthening what already was an amazing community spirit.
I would like to congratulate all the ladies and individuals who have worked so hard and contributed towards helping the families isolated and in need of assistance during these very challenging times the fairies have been simply outstanding in working as a group to help so many people within the village of Rampton.
We are also pleased to have been able to offer the children in the village a small gift and would like to thank the children who have made cards and written letters to CCFR thanking us for the gift.
CCFR would like to thank everybody for their support during 2019 we are pleased to say that with your help we have raised
