I would like to start off by saying a huge thank you to those that joined us on Saturday for our RNLI Fish Supper collaboration with Roselidden. I can now confirm with your donations we raised a whopping £721 for the The Lizard RNLI lifeboat station. I would like to say a massive thank you again to Peter Hadfield of Roselidden for hosting another superb evening in your beautiful long barn and cooking up a feast of all sorts for our 51 guests, no one left hungry that is for sure.
Thank you also to Vanessa Strike for giving Peter a helping hand in the kitchen all evening. Huge thanks to John Strike for also helping out in the kitchen and in the front of house with me and thanks to John's incredible fishing contacts we were given fresh Gurnard, Ling, Coley, Pollock and Prawns all at cost from Newlyn Fish Companyand The Cornish Shellfish Co at Gweek kindly donated 5kg of Cornish Mussels.
The next kind donations came from Thomas Hanson of Hanson Fine Foods who gave us;
2kg Cornish Blue (The Cornish Cheese Company)
2kg Trelawney (Whalesborough Cheese)
2kg Cornish Gouda (Cornish Gouda Co)
these were enjoyed by all on the cheese board course and my final thanks goes to Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream, Curds & Croust and Cornwall's Chocolate Cove for the winning table hamper that was won on the RNLI quiz. The prizes were Rodda's Butter, Rodda's Custard, Rodda's Cornish Clotted Cream, Curds and Croust Cheeses and various Cornwall's Chocolate Cove Chocolate hearts.
