A group of anglers with hearts of gold gathered at Pasir Ris to catch 358 kg of fish to donate to charity yesterday morning (Sep 3).

Stomper Lum was one of the fishing enthusiasts who shared photos and a video of the event with Stomp.

They caught 344 fishes at D'Boat Premium Fishing which were donated to Willing Hearts, a charity which operates a soup kitchen that prepares, cooks and distributes about 5,000 daily meals to over 40 locations island wide, 365 days a year. 

They also donated 325 kg of chicken from $640 given by four anglers who could not turn up to the event.

Lum wanted to highlight the efforts of one of the anglers named Mr Sim.

"He contributed 250 kg of fish caught over the last few days.

"He fishes every day and normally gives all his fish to his 40 workers who have never had to buy a fish."

Elim Chew, the founder of 77th Street, was also at the event and is what Lum describes as "crazy over fishing".

This is not the first time this group of anglers has rallied together for a good cause.
