The Bay joins the Mission to help the Fishermen

Article Date: 2016-04-27

Calum Richardson, of the award-winning The Bay Fish & Chips in Stonehaven, is joining forces with Edinburgh based restaurant, Ondine to host a charity lunch with all proceeds being donated to The Fisherman’s Mission.

The lunch will see Calum join Roy Brett, Chef Proprietor of Ondine, Gary Welch from Welch Fishmongers and Mel Sinclair, an Orkney born Private Chef working in Cannes, to create a lunch to remember on Sunday 22nd May.

The lunch will raise money for the brave fishing communities across Scotland who continuously risk their lives to ensure the freshest catch. Diners can tuck in to the fresh taste of Calum’s sustainable fish and chips, sample a variety of oysters, shucked by Mel at the horseshoe Oyster Bar and enjoy Ondine classics. All supplies will come directly from Welch Fishmongers, which has three shops across Edinburgh.

Calum Richardson, owner/chef at The Bay Fish & Chips is delighted to be bringing his classic fish and chips to the capital and helping raise money for this worthy cause.


"I want to support my friend Roy in his efforts to recognise the incredible sacrifice our fishing communities make to put fish on our plates. When the risk of losing a loved one is just part of everyday life and the worst does actually happen, who wouldn^t want to help?" said Calum.


Chef Proprietor of Ondine, Roy Brett, said: "We know exactly where our fish comes from at Ondine. Sometimes we can all forget what fishermen have to go through to get it here.

"The bravery of our fishermen and the sacrifices they make to work in one of the toughest professions in the world should never be taken for granted. We want to help in any way we can. So the reason behind our lunch is simple and the need is real.”

The Bay Fish & Chips is already a market leader when it comes to sustainability, provenance and environmentally friendly business practice. Calum^s high standards in all areas of his business meant that in 2013, The Bay was the overall winner of the National Fish & Chip Awards. The Bay is also rated as one of the most highly achieving restaurants in the UK by the Sustainable Restaurant Association achieving Three Star Sustainability Champion status.
