Sailing Club fish supper catches £660 for RNLI

A FISH supper hosted by Lyme Regis Sailing Club served up a £660 donation for the volunteers of the town’s lifeboat crew.

The supper was held on Friday, October 11 and 60 meals were served at the club’s headquarters, thanks to the help of Vic Pelaou from Lyme’s Fish Bar.

The event was organised by Trish Williams and Di Mattock of Lyme Regis Sailing Club. They are pictured above with Mr Pelaou presenting a cheque to lifeboat crew members at their training session on Sunday.

Once again this year, the RNLI is encouraging people to come together with friends, family or their local community to have fun and enjoy a fish-themed dish to help save lives at sea.

Every penny raised during the RNLI Fish Suppers around the UK and Ireland will help prevent drowning and will go towards vital lifeboat crew kit, fuel for lifeboats, and essential training, including the charity’s many drowning prevention programmes such as Swim Safe sessions for children.

Further fundraising events in Lyme Regis will include a fish and chip supper at the Nag’s Head on Wednesday, October 16 from 5pm to 7pm. Fish and chips will be provided by Herbies and will cost £10, including a pint.

Former chef and RNLI supporter Petrina Muscroft will host her third annual fish supper at the lifeboat station on Saturday, November 16.

Two sittings will be held from 6pm to 8pm and 8.30pm to 10.30pm with a choice of fish and vegetarian dishes. All are welcome for a minimum donation of £7 and guests should bring their own drinks.
