Hopkins chip scoop sales raise £500 for charity



Hopkins has helped raise £500 for The Fishermen’s Mission after donating £2 from the sale of every portion chip scoop last year.


The money raised will go to help the 63,000 working and retired fishermen in the UK.  

Fishing is the UK’s toughest and most dangerous peacetime occupation with an average 15 fishermen killed or seriously injured every year. The Fishermen’s Mission provides welfare and support to the entire UK fishing community, especially families of fishermen who have been killed, injured or have been survivors of fishing boat accidents as well as retired fishermen.
 
Hopkins portion chip scoops are still available to by via its online shop or by calling the spares department on 0113 257 7934. They are available in three different sizes - large 14oz portion scoop, medium 10oz portion scoop and small 6oz portion scoop - were the brain child of Lesley Graves and Des Anastasiou from Burton Road Chippy in Lincoln who realised they were losing £300 a week on serving too large portions of chips. The bespoke chip scoops provide standard portion sizes to customers increasing margins and reducing waste.
