Award-winning Scottish seafood restaurant Mussel Inn is on a mission to raise funds for fishermen with its latest annual Ladies Charity Lunch and Fashion Show on Sunday 9th October 12.30 till 4.30pm.
Bigger and better than ever before, this year’s extravaganza will feature: a Latin dancing troupe and a grand prize raffle with a basketful of fab prizes up for grabs, including: a free Blythswood Hotel spa; a bottle of champagne; a case of wine; a crate of beer and a cut and blow dry at a top salon.
The £25 ticket to the event, including a free goody bag chockfull of goodies, offer diners and fashionistas a glass of sparkling on arrival, a two course meal with a glass of wine, coffee and petits fours – with all proceeds going to the Fishermen’s Mission, the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen.
Matt Johansson of Mussel Inn in Hope Street, Glasgow, said: “Our Ladies Charity Lunch and Fashion Show is always a fun, popular event. After all, the combination of some delicious seafood, a glass of wine and a fashion show forms the basis of the perfect Sunday afternoon for many ladies – with all proceeds going to support a worthy cause!”
The Fishermen’s Mission fights poverty and despair in our fishing communities by providing emergency and welfare support to fishermen and their families 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
Over 13,000 men and women work in the UK’s toughest and most dangerous peacetime occupation: deep sea fishing. At sea, they face death and injury on a daily basis. On land, many face insecurity and debt – and life for the 50,000 retired fishermen and their dependants is no better, with debt, inadequate pensions and scant savings meaning no respite from hardship once the fishing’s over.
Located at 157 Hope Street, in the heart of the city centre and just a five minute walk from Glasgow Central Station, the award-winning Mussel Inn is renowned for its passion for its offering of delicious locally sourced fresh seafood, providing excellent value for money and a quick and friendly service.
