Whitby Seafoods support the second online auction for the Fishermen’s Mission

59

The Fishermen’s Mission launches its second online auction of gifts and experiences. With fifty items ranging from family days out, luxurious food hampers and self-catering cottage holidays.

Every item bid helps raise money for The Fishermen’s Mission. A charity which aims to provide practical welfare and emergency support to active and retired fishermen and their families. To get involved, head over to the Fishermen’s Mission website, register and start bidding; auction closes on Friday the 1st of November.

To contribute towards the auction, Yorkshire-based company, Whitby Seafoods has donated a meal at Restaurant Number 20 in Port Mulgrave. Owned by the company’s Development Chef, Jason Davies, the restaurant serves a variety of delicious dishes, using the finest and freshest produce in Whitby.

Edward Whittle, Whitby Seafoods Business Development Director, and Fishermen’s Mission Trustee explains “The Fishermen’s Mission is a charity we hold close to our hearts. As a seafood manufacturer, Fishermen are an integral part of our business and their hard work enables us to keep producing our bloomin’ special products and continue on our seafood revolution. We are delighted to donate a prize to Festive 50.”

Business Development Manager at The Fishermen’s Mission, Alison Godfrey said “We are calling the auction the Festive 50, a mixture of creative gifts and experiences, donated by wonderful supporters. Fundraising is vital, not only to raise awareness but the charity relies on donations. For every £1 donated, 88p is spent on providing the services to fishermen, active, retired, as well as their families.”
