Fish suppers raise a tasty sum for RNLI

Diners at the fish and chip supper at Lyme Regis Sailing Club

THREE fish suppers held by supporters of Lyme Regis lifeboat crew raised well over £1,000 for the RNLI.

The town’s sailing club was packed with diners for a traditional fish and chip supper, with food supplied by the Fisherman’s Wife takeaway, and a total of £742 was raised. The event, attended by some 60 people, was organised by Trish Wiliams and Di Mattock.

At the lifeboat station Petrina Muscroft prepared a lifeboat-themed menu that included Shannon class salmon, Tamara tuna broccoli and chick peas and B class baked potatoes. More than 30 people were served in two hours and £377.50 was raised.

A third event at the Nag’s Head pub, where owners James and Rebecca De-Voisey were generously supported by Matt from Herbies Dino Bar, raised £200. Some 33 tickets were sold for fish and chips, scallops and chips and double cheeseburger and chips.

Nick Marks, volunteer lifeboat operations manager for the RNLI in Lyme Regis, said: “I would like to thank everyone involved in any way with these delicious fund-raising events. Many local people and businesses contributed with great generosity.”
