Chippies in Redbridge fundraise for fishermen
Redbridge fish and chip shops have been taking part in a UK wide fundraising event to raise money for a fishermen’s charity.
Brothers Fish Bar in Cameron Road, Seven Kings, and Serene Fish and Chips, in Woodford Avenue, Gants Hill, were two of 100 chippies to get involved in the Chip-In for Charity campaign, run by the National Federation of Fish Friers’ (NFFF).
The official body of more than 10,000 fish and chip shops celebrated its centenary last week and marked the occasion by asking 100 of them to raise £100 for The Fishermen’s Mission.
The charity provides relief and support for fishermen and their families, and Serene Fish and Chip shop owner Mustafa Redif said he was such a strong supporter of the cause that he donated £200.
“We reduced our price for large fish and chips from £7.50 to £5 and donated £2 of each sale,” he said. “It gives me great pleasure to be contributing to the charity.”
