Fish and Chips are still at the heart of our nation and despite the difficult situation at the moment, they remain Britain’s favourite meal so we would like to ask our wonderful customers to help us come together and help our Fishermen at this very difficult time.
In the last few weeks, the Coronavirus has hit our fishermen hard. Markets have collapsed across Europe leading to an abrupt end to fishing in some UK ports. With fishing boats tied up, income has disappeared leading to very tough times for UK fishermen who were already struggling after a harsh winter and terrible storms.
Here at Regal Fish, we are working with the Fishermen’s Mission to extend our support to the fishermen and their families and we need your support!
We want you to host your own ‘fish and chip’ dinner, all you need to do is buy a pack of our delicious Chunky Battered Haddock Portions and enjoy them at home. Simple as that!
For every pack that is purchased during April we will donate £2 to the Fishermens Mission so they can help those in need.
Andy Malcolm, Fundraising Manager for the Fisherman’s Mission was invited to add his comments on our promotion.
‘‘The Fishermen’s Mission is the vital port of call for UK fishermen and their families. Fishing is the most dangerous job of all. Families who have lost loved ones at sea, injured fishermen and retired fishermen battling loneliness and poverty know that the Fishermen’s Mission is there for them.
The Fishermen’s Mission keep our fishermen afloat in times of crisis. We can put food on the table, ensure a roof overhead with heating and lighting and be a trusted friend when anxiety and uncertainty seems to dominate.
Many of our retired fishermen and fishermen’s widows are self-isolating at present. The Fishermen’s Mission ensure they are never forgotten with practical help, food deliveries and most importantly regular telephone calls to ensure all is ok.
Thank you so much for helping keep our fishermen afloat and for supporting the Fishermen’s Mission. Your help means we can always be a lifeline for struggling fishing communities.’’
Our Battered Chunky Haddock Portions are now available to sell via our website www.regalfish.co.uk and to entice you further we have placed a triple offer pack on our website for only £25. That’s £2 saving for you and £6 straight to the Fishermen’s mission!
