Quayside, the multi-award winning fish and chip restaurant and takeaway, which is owned by Fusco’s of Whitby, has stepped up to the plate for the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) by serving a special fish supper to raise money for the organisation.
The supper, which took place on Saturday 29th September, saw 35 members of the Whitby Yacht Club tucking into fish and chips, which were provided by Quayside in a bid to raise money for the RNLI as part of its Fish Supper campaign.
The RNLI Fish Supper is a national event that takes place every year in a bid to raise vital funds for the lifesaving organisation and its volunteers. Raising a total of £250, Quayside served up during the yacht club’s September boat night, where members were invited to enjoy the meal in return for a donation of their choice.
Adrian Fusco, of Fusco’s of Whitby, comments: “The RNLI volunteers do an amazing job, so we wanted to get involved with the Fish Supper as a way of saying thanks for their priceless lifesaving activities. We would like to thank the Whitby Yacht Club and its members for taking part in the supper and helping us to raise a fantastic sum of money.”
This year’s RNLI Fish Supper officially takes place between 5th and 21st October, however Quayside chose to hold their supper slightly earlier to coincide with the Whitby Yacht Club’s monthly boat meeting.
In 2013, Quayside, based on Pier Road, became the first fish and chip shop in Yorkshire to be awarded approval from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) that the fish it serves is sustainably sourced. It was also crowned the winner of the National Fish and Chips Awards in 2014.
Fusco’s of Whitby is a family-run business, with fish and chip outlets in Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay including Quayside, Royal Fisheries, Fish Box Whitby and Fish Box Robin Hoods Bay; as well as the Whitby Fish and Chips catering trailer.
All four of Fusco’s of Whitby’s restaurants and takeaways hold the NFFF Fish & Chip Quality Award, a scheme which aimed at improving standards and rewarding shops that provide top quality fish and chips in a clean, hygienic and safe environment.
