Casting for Recovery UK & Ireland is a unique and wonderful project run by The Countryside Alliance Foundation which marries support, counselling and fly fishing into an alluring weekend programme for ladies with breast cancer. Retreats are free of charge to lady participants and any lady who has, or has had, breast cancer is eligible to apply, subject to medical clearance. The itinerary incorporates advice, support, counselling, relaxation techniques and the beautiful sport of fly fishing. The focus is very much on moving forward. The retreats are delivered by trained facilitators including a psycho-social therapist, a health care professional (e.g. physiotherapist, nurse), as well as qualified fly fishing instructors and fishing guides. The project has its own website – www.castingforrecovery.org.uk through which ladies can apply to attend a retreat. In 2017 we will be holding retreats at the Coniston Hotel & Country Estate in North Yorkshire, the Mount Falcon Estate, Co Mayo, Kimbridge on the Test in Hampshire, Forbes of Kingennie near Dundee and The Arundell Arms Hotel in Devon.
