The Bay fundraises a total of £3,477 for the local community

We’re big believers in giving back at The Bay Fish and Chips, which is why we launched our community fundraising initiative in 2020.

We’re donating every 10p bag charge we receive for online orders at The Bay Fish and Chips to charity or local groups.

Thank you to everyone who nominated charities, community groups or causes that would benefit from the donations we will be working out way through this list.

November 2020: Befriend a Child

In our first month following the launch of our community fundraising initiative, we supported Befriend a Child. The charity provides children and young people across Aberdeenshire with the opportunity to experience new and fun activities they would otherwise not be able to take part in due to circumstances beyond their control.

Overall, during November with your support we raised an incredible £397.

December 2020: Kincardine & Deeside Befriending
