Port Isaac artist, Caroline Cleave, has designed a stunning tea towel and apron to raise money for three worthy charities, the design being aptly called ‘Fish PI’. With a loyal team of volunteers, these have been sold in Port Isaac throughout the season.

The Fishermen’s Mission was chosen to be one of the charities who would receive donations from the sales. “By putting creative thought to good use, it can make a difference. I love what I do, and I was wondering how I could make a difference. Living in Port Isaac with its small fishing fleet we continually see the dangers the fishermen face and the damage the sea can do, choosing the Fishermen’s Mission was a natural link,” said the artist, Caroline Cleave.

“The charity’s aims are of practical welfare and emergency support, achieved from a small team of full time, part time and volunteers. Caroline and the team have raised an impressive £910. The monies are vital as we rely on donations and we are pleased to say that for every £1 donated, 88p is spent on providing the services to fishermen, active, retired, as well as their families,” said Regional Fundraising Manager for the Fishermen’s Mission, Julian Waring.

“Supporting the lives of the fishermen and their families is what motivated Caroline and the team in Port Isaac. All season they have been thoroughly committed to selling the tea towel and aprons, we can’t thank them and the local businesses enough. I was lucky enough to attend the delicious international fish pie competition before Christmas which again raised further funds.” Continued JulianDT6EZXgXcAAdGiN
