We support The fishermans mission year round with collection tubs and contribution boxes at our outlets. The link with our industry is obvious; our fishermen face danger, difficulty and poverty on a daily basis. However thanks to the Fishermen’s Mission, they’re supported through difficult times. They care for our active and retired fishermen in the most practical of ways – and have done so for over 130 years. National Fish and Chip day is also a chance for us to celebrate our dish and collect for as well as raising public awareness of this fantastic charity.
We also support numerous local charities for example on the 17th of June 2016 we held a fundraising for the sunshine fund, our staff all dressed in yellow clothes, the shop was decorated, special yellow desserts made. Our staff and customers a like love these kind of days!
We work with a local charity called making winter warmer for those without. It is an absolutely fantastic local
charity whom we have so far supported by our staff making ‘kindness’ packs for the winter and also donating blankets, coats etc. This is a charity we are really wanting to get more involved with and trying a ‘suspended meal’ system where our local homeless friends can come and claim meals paid for in advance by our customers.
We give out raffle prizes and donations to a large number of events every year, including Macmillian who were a huge support to Ronnie Lee’s granddad. Please get in touch if you’d like us to consider your charity event and we will get straight back to you. Or if you have any other ideas for fundraising that you think we could help you with please don’t hesitate to ask!
We have a long relationship with the Whitley Warriors Ice Hockey team and have sponsored and supported them in numerous ways over the years, through the purchase of strips, helmets, providing food for fund raising evenings, hosting fund raising evenings and also encouraging attendance at their games through our social media and running competitions to win tickets to games.
We have also sponsored various childrens football clubs including the
Whitley Bay Football Club under 8’s, 9’s & 10’s, donating money towards their strips and organizing fun celebration nights for the kids at the end of the season. Have a look in our restaurant for some of our memorabilia.
