The #fishmishbash - Mullion Cove Hotel does its bit for the hard-hit fishermen of Cornwall



Newlyn's fishermen were hard hit over the winter. The #fishmishbash aims to raise money for them. The interview with Fiona promises to be fun and informative. Come along and find out more on Monday at 7pm 

On Friday 4th April Mullion Cove Hotel and Head Chef Fiona Were are hosting the first #fishmishbash to raise much needed funds for the Fishermen’s Mission.

Gina Moore SW Fundraising Manager for the Fishermen’s Mission says “Fishermen around the coast of the UK are struggling to make ends meet. The severe weather has meant that many fishermen haven’t been able to fish since December added to which, much of their valuable and essential fishing gear has been lost or badly damaged in the storms.

The evening will feature a signature five course sushi inspired dinner, sea shanty singers, fundraising raffles and an auction with an amazing array of prizes which have been generously donated by many local businesses. If you would like to donate any prices or items for auction, they would be gratefully received. All proceeds will go to the Fishermen’s Mission. Tickets cost £45 per person including drinks at the table. £25 per ticket sale will be donated direct to the charity.

Reservations are being taken now. To reserve your place and support this event please call the hotel reception 01326 240328
