You may remember the nationwide Homeless Clothing Appeal CC Moore ran last December, which attracted such great support from the angling trade and so many anglers around the UK.

The much needed waterproofs, thermal garments, footwear, gloves, socks, sleeping bags and headwear received were delivered to charities who then supplied them to homeless people in our society who can really benefit from having items of angling clothing, especially at this time of year.

CC Moore are running this appeal again, supporting SSAFA (Armed Forces Support Charity) and St Mungo’s (Homeless Charity), and really want to push the appeal even more in the hope of topping the amazing amount of items donated by anglers last year.

Below is a list of items they would like receive, followed by the address to which you can send them:

Waterproof Outerwear
Thermal Jackets/Trousers
Sleeping Bags

Please send to:
CC Moore & Co Ltd
West Mill Lane
DT10 2RU
Enquiries email:

The following prominent tackle retailers are also happy to receive donated garments within their stores:

Angling Direct – Swindon
Browns Angling – Leighton Buzzard/Haddenham
CarpScene – Somercotes
CarpStore – Sutton Coldfield
Fatfish Tackle – Canterbury
Fishon Tackleshop – Tonbridge
The Tackle Box – Dartford
Yateley Angling Centre – Yateley
HF Angling – Crewe

Please spare what you can and ensure all items are in a suitable condition before donating them.

As the angling community, let’s work together again with this appeal and help some of the many homeless people in our society this Christmas.

Thanks for your help
Ian Moore
