To everyone who voted or shared Matthew’s Fishing Competition link over the last 3 months. To all those who went out of their way to seek votes and pester their friends and work colleagues (and complete strangers) to vote and share. To all the people that I contacted totally out of the blue having not spoken to you for years and who still voted, thankyou.
Sadly Matthew didn’t win first prize but he has consoled himself with second place and £1,000 worth of Angling Direct vouchers.
He is already busy deciding how and what to spend the prize money on and asking when we can drive done to the Rayleigh store. I’m hoping that he might offer to buy me a new warmer sleeping bag, as I suspect that we might well be spending a few more nights out on the bank, before the end of the year.
Thanks again to all our friends and family who voted and help make Matthew one extremely happy lad.
