National Fishing Remembrance Day 2024

National Fishing Remembrance Day 2024

A day of reflection and commemoration of all those who have lost their lives while working in the UK fishing industry.

Join us in supporting the first National Fishing Remembrance Day on Sunday, May 12th, 2024. Here at Wright Brothers, we deeply appreciate the sacrifices made by the remarkable individuals who courageously navigate challenging conditions at sea. This day allows us to collectively honour the memory of those who have tragically lost their lives at sea, affecting families, friends, and entire communities. We have been supporting The Fisherman’s Mission over the years, the national charity that provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, and emotional care to active and retired fishermen and their families. Their dedicated team provides 24-hour emergency response services to fishing vessels operating in UK waters, offering assistance in times of injury or loss at sea.

To support this meaningful cause, for one week, we'll add a voluntary one pound donation to your restaurant bill. Additionally, if ordering online via Wright Brothers At Home, there'll be the option to one pound or more to your order. All proceeds will be donated to the Fishermen's Mission. We appreciate your support.
