This Friday, 7th July, is the annual fundraising event for a very special charity – The Fishermen’s Mission
The Mission supports fishermen and their families in times of distress, hardship and need.
We have supported the ‘Mission’ for many years, helping to raise awareness and funds for this very relevant and worthwhile charity. Over the years we’ve managed to raise several thousand pounds, and since we opened our shop in 2015 many of you have been so very generous with your donations into our Albert and your support with our fundraising events.

On Friday, we’re going to be joining in with Fishmongers, FishFryers and Restaurants across the country, who’s only aim is to try to help in any way we can

If you’re popping into the shop over Friday and Saturday, we’ll have our collection boxes available and we will personally match every £1 donated. We are also running a raffle if you’d like to buy tickets. £1 per strip and the winning ticket will enjoy one of our beautiful, bespoke seafood platters up to the value of £75, made to order anytime between now and December 31st.
Our opening day – 4th December 2015, Albert joined us for the day although to be honest, he didn’t get much work done!
We hope you can join us over the weekend and help to make a real difference to the lives of many fishermen and their families who tragically find themselves in dire need of support.
