Neve’s Mission to support The Fishermen
Fishmongers, Neve Fleetwood will be raising money for two charities this Christmas – The Fishermen’s Mission and the RNLI in Fleetwood, with the production of 2019 Calendars celebrating the local area.
The A3 glossy picture calendar will be on sale from Neve Fleetwood from Thursday 1st November 2018. With a limited print of only 500 calendars, 100% of the £7 cover charge will be split between the two charities, thanks to the generosity of the company directors who have covered the print costs. It is anticipated that over £1,250 will be raised for each charity.
The calendar features photos, old and new, of Fleetwood, taken by the team at Neve, members of the public and kindly donated from personal family albums from the past. In addition, singer and actor, Alfie Boe, who was born in Blackpool, and his management team have kindly donated a photo of Alfie’s recent concert which took place at Fleetwood Football Club, for inclusion.
The Fishermen’s Mission and Fleetwood RNLI are close to the heart of the Neve Fleetwood team; with the majority having family members both past and present that have worked, or still work in the fishing industry.
The Fishermen’s Mission reaches out to both active and retired fishermen by providing practical, spiritual and financial support, as well as a vital emergency response service. They are the only national charity that works solely to help fishermen and their families, and for over 130 years of service, the Fishermen’s Mission has stayed true to their Christian calling with a strong tradition and proud heritage.
RNLI crews and lifeguards around the UK, have saved over 142,200 lives since 1824 – they are the charity that saves lives at sea. Every day of every year, people of all backgrounds get into danger in the water. Fleetwood now operates both an all-weather Shannon class lifeboat, and an inshore D class lifeboat. The crews have been presented with 15 awards for gallantry.
Neve Fleetwood have been providing fresh fish and seafood to the restaurant and catering industry in and around the North West, for over 30 years. Neve Fleetwood goes back three generations to when its founders Chris and Gerrard Neve began going door-to-door, selling fish to local markets and restaurants. The business has changed dramatically since those days, however one thing that remains is the heritage and passion amongst the Neve Fleetwood team, who are all local, with their roots firmly based in the fishing industry.
