Article Date: 2016-01-29
In February 2016, award winning Krispies Fish & Chip Shop, Exmouth, Devon will launch their ‘Putting Fish First’ campaign. The aim of the campaign is to use fun and accessible ways to encourage adults and children alike into Putting Fish First in their diet.
Kelly Barnes, who founded Krispies with her husband Tim back in 2000 says "we have been selling Fish & Chips for 15 years and we are passionate about what we do. Fish doesn’t just taste great, it’s good for you too and if you choose sustainably sourced fish it ensures that our oceans remain full of fish for generations to come and we want to help spread the word”.
To ensure the campaign is launched with a splash and to celebrate their 15th Birthday, Krispies are holding a Fish & Fun Charity Event. On Saturday 27th February 2016 the shop will be Putting Fish First by ONLY having Fish and Chips on the menu and by setting themselves the goal of selling 1,500 portions on that one day. There will be special pricing to ensure orders are taken and served at speed and EVERY SINGLE PENNY TAKEN ON THE DAY WILL GO TO CHARITY.
"We have loved living and working in Exmouth over the last 15 years so we wanted to use our birthday to not only celebrate sustainably sourced fish and launch our new campaign but also help give something back to the community that has given us so much” says Tim.
Kelly and Tim’s chosen charity is Vranch House School in Exeter, a unique charity that provides care, education, training and treatment for physically disabled children. The school is currently fund raising for a much needed renovation of their hydrotherapy pool, an essential tool for treatment of children with physical and painful conditions and Kelly and Tim are delighted that ALL the money will go to this very good cause.
This has been made possible by the extremely generous donations from key trade suppliers to Krispies including Friars Pride and Rammi, Williams Potatoes of Exeter, Middleton Foods, T.Quality, Isle of Ely and last but not least Krispies staff will all be working for free on the day."Without the kindness and support of our suppliers and staff the event would not be possible and we would not be able to be so generous to Vranch House School” Says Kelly
So on the 27th February from 11.30am onwards come on down to Krispies to have some fish and fun and raise as much money as possible for charity. "Don’t leave it too late in the day though” warns Tim "once 1,500 portions have been sold the shop will be closed and we don’t want anyone to miss out.”
