Since its beginnings the Sika Show has supported charities in various forms and behind the scenes has done so year upon year. From 2017 onwards this will take a more official format. Each year we will offer a support package and a platform for fundraising to one main charity. The charity will be selected through recommendation from our outdoor community. The charity for 2017 is Reel Recovery however, 2018 and onwards is open. If you know of a charity that you would like us to support, or have any ideas, then we would love to hear from you. Email us!
Our 2017 Charity was Reel Recovery
Reel Recovery New Zealand is a charity that facilitates fly fishing retreats for men with cancer. The retreats are run over three days with all the costs being met by Reel Recovery including fishing gear, accommodation and food. During the event the participants get to experience New Zealand fly fishing whilst being guided by their very own fishing guide. The retreat allows the budding fly fisherman to meet and talk to others on a similar journey which from feedback from the participants has a huge value in terms of support through shared experience. The Retreats are based in the North Island but plans are afoot to hold one annually in the South Island.
What is a Reel Recovery Retreat?
In a nut shell – a weekend of fly fishing and camaraderie for men with cancer. Though only a few days in duration, a Reel Recovery retreat can be a life-changing event for men battling cancer. The program blends outdoor activity with directed conversations to create a unique environment conducive to relaxed, open interactions. The program is designed to be both experiential and reflective, to develop group camaraderie as well as individual skills, and to build bonded friendship that provides a reservoir of personal hope. This is a special weekend of support, reflection and adventure.
