RNLI Volunteer Lifeboat crews are ready to drop everything – even their supper – at a moment’s notice to go to the rescue of people in trouble on the water. This October Alberts Chop House are hosting a Fish Supper to support the needs of Blackpool Lifeboat’s Volunteer Crew to help them raise £52,000 for a new D-class Lifeboat.


Did you know that Manchester was the first ever city to host a charity street collection? This street collection took place in 1891 in Alberts Square following a lifeboat disaster off the coast at Lytham St Anne’s and raised a whopping £5,000!

Five years earlier, 27 men from Southport and St Anne’s died while trying to rescue sailors from the stricken vessel ‘Mexico’. The RNLI asked for funds and Manchester Industrialist Sir Charles Macara responded in style.

He was so concerned for the widows and children of the volunteers lost that he decided to organise a collection for them, he appealed to the man on the street.

Charles and his wife Marion got a committee together and organised the first Lifeboat Saturday in aid of the appeal. It was the world’s first charity street collection ever recorded, and the formula proved popular for decades to come.

All proceeds from the Fish Supper will go towards Blackpool Lifeboat. Book now to avoid disappointment.
