NZ Textiles Fishing Competition raises $16,000 for Sweet Louise!The morning of Friday 21 February 2014 dawned bright and clear over Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf … calm seas and blue skies invited a fishing flotilla to take to the high seas for a day of fishing and to join in the fun of the annual NZ Textiles Fishing Competition.

Boatloads of eager fishermen and women baited hooks and dropped lines in support of Sweet Louise for the fifth year running – and what a whopper of a catch at the end of the day!

A king-size ‘thank you’ to Brett and Sandra Fleetwood of Scorpio Agencies for their incredible commitment of time, energy, enthusiasm and resource to the organisation of this wonderful event which raised an incredible $16,000 for Sweet Louise!

We extend a heartfelt thank you to all of those who supported and participated in the day’s Competition and who gave so generously at day’s end over dinner, drinks and ‘fishy tales’ on Motuihe Island.

There were spot prizes, awards for the ‘biggest fish of the day’, and an auction with fabulous items donated by sponsors and supporters.
