As the Race for Life starts in Sewerby this Sunday, Audrey’s Chip Shop will be starting the fryers to raise money in unconventional style.

On the back of the successful blue batter for the Tour de Yorkshire, the company are to sell their fish on Sunday in a pink batter with all proceeds from sales going directly to Cancer Research UK.

It is a cause that runs close to the heart of owner James Morrison after his father-in- law sadly passed away from cancer.

He said: “This is the last time we are going to do this. Pink is massive on the day with everyone wearing the pink t-shirts. It is certainly going to be a busy day.”

When the first Tour de Yorkshire cycle race started on 1 May in Bridlington, the shop sold more than 40 blue fish and chips, something James was delighted with.

He said: “The day was brilliant and it was a real talking point among the residents and visitors to the town.

“People are still popping into the shop and asking how did the blue fish get on and seeing if we are doing something like it again.”

The waiting staff at the establishment are also giving up their tips over a two week period. James has promised to then match the amount the staff raise for the charity.

James said: “I am giving the income we receive from the pink batter to Cancer Research so it would be fantastic if the people of Bridlington could get behind the idea and try something different for a worthy cause.”
