There’s something fishy going on at Scarborough RNLI.
The life-saving charity is cooking up a fundraising fish supper at Walkers fish restaurant in Ayton on Thursday 3 October.
It’s part of the RNLI’s annual national fish-supper campaign, which runs from 11-27 October.
Tickets cost £16.50 and can be bought at Walkers, the lifeboathouse shop and by ringing Colin Woodhead on 863666. A hundred places are available.
For each sale, Walkers will give £4 to the RNLI. The proceeds of a raffle will also go to the lifeboat.
Admission to the supper will be staggered, starting at 6.30pm and continuing at intervals. “People will enter every 20 or 30 minutes, explains Colin Woodhead, who chairs Scarborough RNLI.
Similar events will be taking place around the country at the same time. “We are encouraging people to get together with friends, family or their community and organise a fishy-themed, fun eating experience to raise vital funds to help save lives at sea”, says Colin. Fish suppers can be anywhere, including home.
Scarborough RNLI’s lifeboat operations manager Andy Volans says: “Hosting a fish supper is a great way for people to support the RNLI. It’s easy to sign-up, it’s fun and you can make the menu as simple or technical as you like, while spending time with your nearest and dearest.
“And of course, your donations will contribute towards equipment, crew kit or fuel for one of our lifeboats”.
The RNLI relies on the generosity of the public to fund its lifesaving services. Its volunteer lifeboat crew often sacrifice their precious meal times and special occasions at a moment’s notice – answering the call of their pagers to rescue those in need on the water.
In 2018, RNLI lifeboats launched 8,964 times, helping 9,412 people and saving 211 lives. On average, 26 people per day were saved (four more than in 2017).
The RNLI is encouraging people to share news of their events by using the hash tag #RNLIFishSupper and tagging @RNLI in posts.
