Book your 'plaice' at the Whitby RNLI Fish Supper
The Star Inn the Harbour, Whitby is hosting the annual charity fundraiser 'Fish Supper' on Wednesday 18 October.
The evening begins at 7pm with food being served from 7.30pm. There will be a raffle, auction and entertainment.
RNLI Coxswain Howard Fields will host dinner on the Coxswain's table where guests can meet some of the volunteer lifesavers from Whitby RNLI.
The lifesaving menu is as follows:
Sourdough Crumpets, Potted Shrimp,
Juniper-creamed Curly Kale, Smoked Bacon & Cider Juices
The evening is part of the RNLI's national 'Fish Supper' event.
The charity's crews are ready to drop everything – even their supper – at a moment’s notice to go to the rescue of people in trouble on the water.
People are also being encouraged to host their own fish suppers during the weekend of 13 to 15 October.
The money raised from Fish Supper events will support all aspects of the RNLI's lifesaving work and could help to buy kit for volunteer crew members or fuel for a lifeboat.

Key facts about the RNLI
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.
The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
