Sponsorship and Charities
We are passionate about supporting local charities. This year, we are committed to supporting an incredible charity; Make a Wish Foundation.
Make a Wish is an incredible charity, close to the hearts of the Forbes family. Over 60,000 children in the UK have been diagnosed with a critical condition, changing their lives and the lives of their families forever. For them, the joy of childhood is brought to an abrupt end, with treatment plans, hospital visits and sleepless nights taking over. A wish revives a childhood stolen by critical illness. It brings light and joy to children and their loved ones and leaves a profound and lasting impact on all their lives.
We will be raising money throughout the year with our own events as well as team funding. Please keep an eye on our Events Page to see what we have coming up.
We regularly support Casting for Recovery, who provide an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by breast cancer to gather on retreat in a natural setting and learn the sport of fly fishing. For more information on Casting for recovery please click here.

Mike Forbes himself, a former National Fly Fishing Champion and Captain of the Senior Scottish International Fly Fishing Team, is passionate about youth fishing and promoting the sport to the younger generation.

Our very own Marketing and Accommodation Manager, Charlotte Gammie, was the top goal scorer for Montrose Ladies FC last season. We are delighted to be her main sponsor for the season and we wish the team all the best!
We support a variety of charities throughout the year. In 2015 we raised over £8,000 for Tayside Children with Cancer and Leukaemia (TCCL), who are a wonderful local charity that the Forbes family hold close to their hearts. For more information on TCCL please click here. Cash for Kids was on of our previous chosen charities and we managed to raise over £5,000 with the help of all who attended our Sportsman's Dinner.
