Forces C.A.R.P announces new patrons

The trustees and team behind Forces C.A.R.P are pleased to announce that three new gentlemen have accepted to become patrons of the project and help support its aims and objectives, and more importantly, lend a hand to those wounded veterans that the project works with during their recovery journeys.

The three anglers in question are Brian Skoyles, Julian Cundiff and Dave Levy, all have a tremendous wealth of experience and knowledge of the sport, and all have a keen interest in supporting veterans of our Armed Forces, and they join Ian Chillcott, who was the first patron of Forces C.A.R.P.

Brian has been involved with the project for a number of years in providing one-to-one tuition during the northern sessions. Julian needs no introduction due to the support he has given many charitable events in aid of our forces over the years, his involvement will be well received by the veterans. Dave Levy’s military background is well known, having served in the Parachute Regiment before going on to make big waves within the carp fishing community and like Julian, his involvement will be invaluable to many veterans’ journeys.

It’s exciting times ahead for Forces C.A.R.P, in 2019 they have five UK programmes and three open days in the diary, enabling them to accommodate almost 70 wounded, injured and sick veterans who are wanting to use carp fishing as a tool for their recovery, in addition they are hopeful the project will be successful in its bid for charity status.

They wish to thank Brian, Julian and Dave for agreeing to accept the invite to become patrons and they’re looking forward to working with them over the coming months.
