Chip shop ‘special’ proves popular with punters
Customers queue into the street during chemo appeal fund-raiser.
HUNGRY customers queued into the street when a Barnstaple fish and chip shop opened its doors for a special night of fund-raising in aid of North Devon’s Chemotherapy Appeal.
Staff at the Whiddon Valley Fryer were rushed off their feet when they put in a very special three-and-a-half-hour shift last night (Monday) – on their day off.
They served nearly 100 customers, raising �1,200 to help build a dedicated unit and day treatment centre at North Devon District Hospital.
Fryer Aaron Cooper said: “It was a really busy night – non-stop from start to finish.

“We had six members of staff working and people were queuing out of the door – we didn’t even have time to stop for a drink.
“We served lots of plaice and haddock, fish we don’t usually sell. There were lots of regulars, as well as new customers and we’d like to thank everybody for their support.”
