“Let’s Tackle Cancer” was established in the UK in 2010. It rapidly became a vehicle for, mainly, anglers to raise funds for the three nominated cancer charities – Cancer Research UK, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Using the Just Giving platform, pages were created for the three charities and, to date (September 2014), close to £40,000 has been raised by the generosity of the angling community.
Vintageflytackle.com have expanded LTC’s options by donating space on their web site to allow donors to sell their unwanted classic tackle. If you have anything fishing tackle related you would like to donate, please contact us.
It works just like any other consignment sale. The donor sends us the item to sell. We examine, photograph, agree on valuation, write copy and list it on the site. The only difference between these sales and typical consignment sales is that VFT does not retain a sales commission on donated items.
Potential buyers can either hit the “Add To Cart” and go through the “Checkout” process; or contact us and make alternative payment arrangements.
We are also happy to facilitate a donation to charity of whatever percentage of any of your sales that you wish. Tell us, and we'll make it happen.
Thanks very much for your support!
