On Friday 29th May, Ramus Seafood Emporium, on Kings Road, Harrogate was delighted to welcome Albert the Fisherman, the mascot of The Fisherman’s Mission.
The Fishermen’s Mission were in Harrogate to receive a donation of £500 from Ramus from sales of their cookbook FORTY, which was launched last year to celebrate 40 years selling the finest fresh fish and seafood in Yorkshire.
Jonathan Batchelor, MD of Ramus presented the cheque to Chris Hirst, Corporate Fundraising Manager for the Fishermen’s Mission. “We pride ourselves on providing the best possible quality and variety of seafood to our customers,” said Jonathan, “and we couldn’t do this without the dedication and hard work of our fishermen. We’re extremely pleased to be able to support the Fishermen’s Mission in their excellent work, and will also be supporting .”
On behalf of the Fishermen’s Mission Chris Hirst added, “We’re delighted that Ramus has chosen to support us through the sales of their cookbook. The charity receives no government support so is dependent on the generosity of individuals and the support of companies like Ramus Seafood Emporium.”
The Fishermen’s Mission was established in 1881 and is the only national charity that delivers emergency response and welfare help to active and retired fishermen and their families. Last year the Fishermen’s Mission helped Fishermen and their families access over £1.5 million pounds in grants and welfare support.
RAMUS FORTY is a collection of 40 delicious fish and shellfish recipes to inspire us all to eat more seafood. The books are available to purchase in both the Harrogate and Ilkley stores, as well as online, with all future sales contributing to the Fishermen’s Mission pot.
Ramus will also be supporting Fish Friday, the annual charity day for the Fishermen’s Mission on 19th June, so look out in store for more ways to support the nation’s fishermen.
