Community, What's On
Pit Stop Fast Food in Newry will be one of the 100 shops in the UK supporting a national fundraising day as part of the National Federation of Fish Friers’ (NFFF) Chip-In for Charity event. The NFFF, which is the official body representing some 10,500 UK fish and chip shops, celebrates its Centenary today, Monday 11th November. To commemorate this historic event, 100 fish and chip shops around the UK have signed up to pledge a minimum of £100 towards the NFFF’s chosen charity, the Fishermen’s Mission. Each generous £100 donation will go towards the overall target of £10,000. Shops have come up with a variety of ways to raise the money, from selling portions of fish and chips to pensioners for 100 pence to delivering meals to residents in local sheltered accommodation. When Chip-In for Charity was first conceived, the NFFF was inundated with shops wishing to donate to the Fishermen’s Mission. The charity, which provides relief and support for fishermen and their families across the UK, is delighted with the support Pit Stop fast Food and other fish and chip shops have given to their cause. At the NFFF head office and their in-house Training School in Leeds they’ll be preparing 100 fish and chip lunches for 100 local pensioners to enjoy for 100 pence. Local celebrities – including veteran England rugby league star Keith Senior and screenwriter Kay Mellor of Fat Friends and Band of Gold fame – will be given the opportunity to cook their own lunches in one of the NFFF’s frying ranges. Some shops which registered for Chip-In for Charity will broadcast their progress on Skype and they’ll be e-mailing photos and reports on the day to be distributed via social media.
