Filey RNLI hold very successful fish supper.
A massive £1273 was raised on Monday evening 2nd October when Filey Lifeboat Station held its fish supper at Ingham’s fish restaurant, Filey.
Over 80 friends, Ladies Guild members and crew attended Filey Lifeboat’s fish supper, courtesy of restaurant owners Chris and Debbie Ingham, and were treated to a fantastic evening which included fish and chips with mushy peas, chocolate fudge cake and drinks along with a raffle and “fish” quiz.
The quiz proved a bit of a challenge for most teams but was eventually won by Lifeboat Operations Manager, John Colling, and his party, with the lifeboat crew a close second.
There were a considerable number of prizes on offer for the raffle which had been donated by other Filey Traders and friends of the Station.
Ticket sales and raffle raised £700 and a further £571 was donated by Chris Ingham from the proceeds of the restaurant's fisherman collection box.
John Ward, Filey Lifeboat Press Officer said: “We had a fantastic evening culminating in a great amount raised for Filey Lifeboat. Many thanks to all our friends who supported the event, to our Ladies Guild for running the evening and to Chris and Debbie Ingham and their staff for their generosity”
