Weymouth chippy customers give generously to local homeless charity and continues to make our community a better place

The customers of Fish ’n’ Fritz Weymouth are not shy about helping people less fortunate than themselves. For the last few months they have been donating teas, coffees and food to local homeless people with Fish ’n’ Fritz suspended coffee scheme. They have also been taking part in a Scampi and chips promotion to help the homeless. Paul Hay the owner of Fish ’n’ Fritz has been donating £1 to ‘The Bus Shelter Dorset’ for each portion of Scampi & Chips sold, as the promotion ends the total has reached £250.

Paul says “Each year we choose a charity to work with, this year I wanted to focus on people from the local homeless community. It’s an area I have worked voluntarily for in the past and after meeting Emily and her team from ‘The Bus Shelter Dorset’ project I really wanted to help and give them our support to the project. Their work adds to the work we are already doing with Fish ’n’ Fritz  Suspended Coffee Scheme. When I launched the scampi offer I didn’t know how it would go, but our customers really got behind the idea and we have never sold so much. We are now thinking about our next promotion with bus shelter”

The Bus Shelter Dorset is now awaiting a decision on a planning application.

Emily McCarron from The Bus Shelter Dorset says “We would like to thank all the Fish ’n’ Fritz customers for their generous donations, this really makes a difference to the project. Things are moving ahead, the next step being our planning application, if all goes well we are hoping to open our doors in January.”
