OWNERS of a town centre fish and chip shop are urging people to swap their Sunday dinner for fish and chips to help raise money for a cancer support charity.

Tracy and Jez Groom, owners of Frydays Traditional Fish and Chips on Old Mill Lane, will be opening their shop this Sunday, a day they don’t usually work, to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Fifty per cent of all proceeds taken on the day will be donated to the charity. They are also holding a raffle, and tickets are availabe to purchase until tomorrow before the winners are drawn on Sunday.

Tracey said: “I’ve got quite a few personal reasons as to why we’re donating the money to Macmillan but many of us have experienced tragic loss of a loved one through cancer and this is such a great cause to help,

“We don’t usually work on Sundays but we’ll be open from half 11 in the morning until three in the afternoon and half of all the money that is taken over the counter on that day will be donated to Macmillan along with any public donations that we receive.”

So far the list of raffle prizes include a £35 hair or make-up voucher by Lesley Cherry, a free haircut by Tony’s Barbers, a meal for two in Estabulo, a voucher for food or drinks at The Mill of the Black Monks, free photo shoot by Florence Verity, £70 Pro Dent voucher on dent removal, and a free cold weather check by Burrows Kia.
