Fish Supper raises vital funds for the Fishermen’s Mission
Prospective Conservative MP, Derek Thomas joined forces with volunteers at the Fishermen’s Mission in Newlyn to help raise much needed cash for the work of the Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen.
Around 40 people enjoyed a fish supper at the event which raised over £500 for the work at the Mission. Derek Thomas organised the event after meeting some of the fishermen with Fisheries Minister, George Eustice MP in February. Derek said “The storms we experienced just a few months ago severely disrupted many fishermen’s livelihood and I know the Mission was able to help many people in crisis. The fish supper provided an opportunity to help with funds and show our appreciation to those at the Mission.”
