EFTTEX Would like to thank it's exhibitors for their kind generosity and the huge amount of products donated to our 2019 chosen charity. They truly help to create opportunities for those who would otherwise be unable to get involved in fishing.
The EFTTEX Official Charity is a very important part of the show. It’s been fourteen years since companies from the industry started supporting. EFTTA members and exhibitors contribute every year and help the less fortunate to enrich their fishing experience.
“De Maatjes” (the Buddies) fishing club, based in Belgium, offer recreational and competitive fishing with a strong focus on encouraging youth and disabled participants. They provide fishing tuition to people of all ages and abilities aiming to inspire a passion for the sport. They have experience in introducing and developing disadvantaged, mentally ill or physically disabled children, from a wide variety of backgrounds, to fishing with programs tailored around individual needs. With donations they can help even more children to experience happy moments!
