Following the success of last year’s event where an incredible £13,000 was raised for The Fishermen’s Mission, the KFE School of Frying Excellence is back on tour again with plans to smash that figure.
From 25th-27th March 2019, 10 stars of the industry will be touring the country and providing training sessions in fish and chip shops, in exchange for a donation to the charity. All of the trainers are National Fish & Chip Awards winners and will openly share their winning knowledge and experience.
The three-day event will end in style with a charity dinner at award-winning shop The Scallop Shell in Bath where there will be a charity auction with prizes including a tonne of batter, a Bold batter mixer and £300 T.Quality vouchers.
KFE’s Tanya Henderson comments: “The support that we received last year from the industry was overwhelming. We had some amazing feedback from the fish and chip shops that took part in the training and the charity dinner really brought the industry together. The most important thing to come out of the activity was the money that we raised for The Fishermen’s Mission, which went on to help the families of 16 UK fishermen that lost their lives in 2016.”
