We are proud of our community connections at LOA and see our close-knit relationship with locals as one of our greatest strengths.

To that end we are proud supporters of local charity, Wish for Fish, an organisation that gives people with physical or mental disabilities or financial hardship the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of being out on the open water, particularly through fishing.

Director Nick Earl is a keen fisherman himself and was ‘hooked’ on supporting the charity when he met the charity’s founder, Bryce Dinneen. A passionate fisherman, Bryce was involved in an accident that left him a tetraplegic. The accident spurred him on to help others with disabilities and hardship gain access and have the opportunity to experience the joy of fishing.

Nick is a Trustee of Wish for Fish and is proud to be able to help in some small way. Solicitor Ben Spence has recently come on board as Secretary after being involved in a recent Wish for Fish fishing competition.
