Cudmore Fishery, Nr Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire, ST5 5HW


The event is split into 2 parts, the first being our social gathering on the Friday evening and the second part our 24hr pairs match.

The match will take place across Tara, Avoca and Milo with the match being competed for by 6 teams of 6 pairs.

The teams competeing in Carping4Heroes 2018 are:

  • Royal Navy & Royal Marines (reigning champions)
  • British Army
  • Royal Air Force
  • Military Provost Guard Service
  • Ex-Military Carp Anglers
  • Civilian Carp Team

We at Carping4Heroes have no input on team selections and therefore anyone interested in fishing the match element of the event should contact the team captains for the relevant team they qualify for, contact details will be forwarded if you send us a message via our contact page.


Each year we hold a Q&A session on the Saturday evening from 1630hrs at the event marquee, details of our 2018 guest speaker will be announced in due course, as always we welcome anyone along and following the session we will hold our raffle draw.


Our Friday night social gatherings have become legendary amongst those who regularly attend and 2018 will be no different, as always we will have live music, an auction and a pub style quiz to kick things off, also, there will be food and beverages available throughout the evening.

Anyone is welcome to attend our Friday night social and we actively encourage newcomers along as it’s all about the fundraising and not the fishing.

(Auction and live music details will be updated in due course)


We fundraise via various methods throughout the weekend and include:

  • Sponsorship by all anglers taking part in the match
  • Auction that will take place on the Friday evening
  • Raffle that will take place on the Saturday afternoon after the Q&A session

In 2018 we’re hoping to raise £15,000 and we hope to see you at this amazing event to support and help us achieve this aim.
