People are being encouraged to join the “world’s largest fish finger sandwich party” to raise cash for a charity which helps those who rely on the sea for a living.
The Fishermen’s Mission is hoping to entice fans of the humble snack to lend their support for the group’s national fundraising day.
Those taking part will be invited to rustle up their sandwiches at noon on Friday to help workers who have fallen on hard times in recent months.
The party will take place over the internet on the group video service Zoom.
In preparation for the sandwich social, live cooking demonstrations from top celebrity chefs such as Nathan Outlaw and Tom Brown will offer some ideas on how to jazz up the simple meal.
Artist Caroline Cleave and her husband Jon Cleave from the Fishermen’s Friends will be on hand with a fishy tale or two and participants need to donate £3 to join in.
Ali Godfrey, director of business development for the Fishermen’s Mission, said: “We are here as a trusted friend supporting fishermen and their families through the storms of life.
“With many of our fundraising options currently paused, the World’s Biggest Fish Finger Sandwich Zoom call is a great and very tasty way to show your support for our fishermen.”
The organisation has helped fishermen and their loved ones for nearly 140 years.
