A Mission to Serve

A Mission to Serve

Since former Mission Superintendent Len Scott decided to launch the Newlyn Fish Festival in 1989 the festival has sought to raise funds for the benefit of those involved in this tough industry, not just in Newlyn but across Cornwall. This has been achieved through a wonderful day of celebration of the sea, seafood and fishing.

Over the last 25 years the festival has donated tens of thousands of pounds to the Fishermen’s Mission. This is a drop in the Ocean.
