Leigh Fishing Competition 2016

This year the annual Leigh Family Fishing Contest is back to raise money for the vital Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and other local causes.

Now in its 13th year the event goes from strength to strength, with over $190,000 raised for the rescue helicopter and other emergency services over this time. Last year's 500 tickets sold out well in advance of the event and many people missed out on their opportunity to win the fabulous Surtees Workmate and 4 stroke 60hp Yamaha outboard.

100% of proceeds are donated to the rescue chopper and other Leigh local community causes. In 2015 over $40,000 was raised for these causes thanks to the participation of our wonderful sponsors and generous participants on the day.
