Network Magazine Autumn 2020
Fife, Scotland, encompasses a number of idyllic fishing harbours. Here the fishing fraternity harvest prawns, lobsters, crabs, scallops, and razor clams from sapphire blue seas. Like many scenic coastal towns, they look charming but poverty and unemployment lie hidden behind the quaint seafronts.
Dealing with such challenges requires key local partnerships with other organisations like the East Neuk Foodbank. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, they have supported individuals and families with food, often delivering necessary supplies.
You walk with us forever.
Fisherman Pete Mosley, 37, from Withernsea, East Yorkshire, was lost at sea last summer. One year on, Peter’s partner, Gemma, shares with us the heart-breaking pain of her loss.
A Big Thank You!

■ Over £250,000 given out in emergency grants to fishermen in need
■ Many hundreds of welfare interactions with clients
■ Fears calmed, hope restored, lives changed. We could not do this without you, our wonderful supporters. Thank you from every fisherman, every fishing family, and from us all at the Fishermen’s Mission.
