Thursday 11th June - Speakers Lunch - The True cost of Fish & Chips

Fishing remains the most dangerous peacetime occupation.

The Fishermen’s Mission is a 139 year old charity caring for our UK fishermen, their families and communities.

Andy Malcolm, the Fishermen’s Mission East of England Regional Fundraising Manager presents a talk looking at the life of our fishermen and the charity that cares for them. We will also investigate the history and trivia of fish and chips, tackle a short fishy quiz, enjoy some sea poetry and throw in a sea shanty or two for a truly fishy lunch.
