Ollie was our best friend, and was always the best of company to be around.
Ollie was a keen angler and loved to spend his time at the lakes. Sadly he passed in August 2020 from an on-going battle with brain cancer, so every year we come together to celebrate him and the things he loved, all in support of the Brain Tumour Charity.
The Ollie Scott Fund has been set up in Ollie’s memory and to raise funds for The Brain Tumour Charity and to support their work.

FISH FOR OLLIE
Fish For Ollie is our tribute to Ollie celebrating one of his favourite hobbies. Every year on the last weekend of September we gather at the beautiful Girton Lakes Complex to hold a mammoth fishing match with a great atmosphere, hundreds of prizes, catering and plenty of fish!
This year the match will take place on the Girton Mainlake over the course of the weekend beginning the
September the 23rd. We will be hosting:
Food and drinks across the weekend
A raffle with massive prizes
Open day on Saturday the 24th September
Participants will arrive and set up on the 23rd ready for the match commencing Friday evening. Saturday we will host a meet and greet for anyone who would like to come and celebrate the cause and see the Complex with us. The final day will be Sunday, where we will host our closing ceremony and announce the winners of the match and open raffle.
We hope to raise as much money and cheer as last year and see as many people as we can for a chat and a look around the lakes on the Saturday.
- LAST YEAR -
Last year we had ~70 fishing and plenty more raffle participants and managed to raise a massive £12,105.00.
We owe it all to those who take part and donate, we hope to see even more people this year for our get together!
