A brand new family board game about to hit the table tops of Britain will hold a launch to raise money for The Rosemary Foundation.

The Great Fishing Match game is due to be launched at Langrish House near Petersfield from 6.15pm to 9pm on Saturday, 18th March 2017. The entrance fee is £8 for anyone wanting to play the new game and £4 for spectators. The ticket includes light refreshments.

All profits from the launch will be donated to the Rosemary Foundation by the game’s creator Mike Haggerty.

Jeremy Mitchell, manager of The Rosemary Foundation, said: “We are very grateful to both Mr Haggerty and Langrish House for supporting our work with the launch. As we are a charity, we depend on the efforts of supporters like these so we can continue to provide our service.”

Based in Langrish, The Rosemary Foundation provides clinical staff to help patients in the latter stage of life-limiting conditions in Petersfield and the surrounding towns and villages.

Games are normally set a time limit of one hour. Although the theme is fishing, a knowledge of freshwater fish and angling is definitely not needed to play and win this game.

Mr Haggerty said: “Because there’s always a definite time limit on the length of each game, it makes it perfect for friendly indoor competitions. At Langrish we expect to have anywhere between 36 and 48 members of the general public playing simultaneously, using up to 8 game sets.”

There will be a prize for the individual winners of each game.

So far, 200 prototype game sets have been made but more than 1000 adults and children have enjoyed playing what’s been described as a competitive and fun new family game.
