TV funnyman Jim Davidson has a reel good reason to come to Milton Keynes - as part of the Capin4Heroes charity fishing event.

Jim, who is best known for shows such as Big Break and the Generation Game as well as his stand-up act, is also chairman of the charity which support veterans who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction or who find themselves in prison.

The Carpin4Heroes event will take place at Linford Lakes from May 15-17 in aid of the charity.

It costs £50 to take part and includes a free hog roast at the Marle Inn.

Jim said: “I have been fishing since I was three. My father used to take me to Dartford Lakes and Wateringbury on the River Medway in Kent. Learning to fish was so important to me, so important that school came second to chub fishing on the River Darent.

“Carp fishing has changed so much and is now a multi-million pound industry but the blokes remain the same… great people who respect nature and conservation. I am so pleased that Carpin4Heroes will now be raising funds for care after combat. I look forward to fishing with them.
