Whiddon Valley Fryer, South Sixteen and Castle Inn serve up copious amounts of cod for pensioners to raise money for the Fishermen’s Mission.

WHIDDON Valley Fryer staff cooked up a storm at Monday’s Chip-In for Charity event on Monday to help raise money for the Fishermen’s Mission.

Staff at the Barnstaple takeaway went to work on their day off to join 100 fish and chip shops around the UK, offering a fish and chip lunch to 100 pensioners in return for a 100 pence donation.

The event celebrated 100 years of the National Federation of Fish Friers and it is hoped to raise £10,000 for the charity, dedicated to supporting UK fishermen and their families.

The Whiddon Valley Fryer cooked up more than 90 portions of fish and chips during the lunchtime session, linking in with the Castle Inn at Landkey, which also served more than 30.
