Rick Stein’s Fish in Falmouth raise £1,200 for the British Red Cross
18th Dec 2014
We are delighted to announce that Rick Stein’s Fish, Falmouth has raised £1,200 for the British Red Cross in the first charity lunches held at the restaurant.
The three weeks of charity lunches held throughout October saw diners enjoy a specially devised three course lunch including some of Rick’s favourite dishes such as Thai fish cakes, goujons of flat fish, and cod curry for £14.95 with £2 being directly donated to the British Red Cross.
Luke Taylor, our head chef at Rick Stein’s Fish, Falmouth said: “We were delighted to get involved with the British Red Cross and want to thank everyone who came and supported us in our first ever charity lunches at the restaurant. We are already looking at ways to raise more money next year.”
The money raised will go towards helping people in the UK and around the world to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies, disasters and conflicts. Overseas, just £5 can provide drinking water for four people a year. Here in Cornwall, £90 could buy emergency Rest Centre Packs for 30 people that have been evacuated from their homes.
Sara Loftus from the British Red Cross commented “We’re so grateful to Rick and Jill Stein, their team and of course, their customers for putting the time and effort into promoting and supporting this brilliant idea and raising so much money for the Red Cross. We hope that, as well as enjoying the delicious food, they had the added satisfaction of knowing they were supporting a great cause.”
We continue our charity work in 2015 with our annual charity lunches at The Seafood Restaurant from 13th January – 8th February.
