The Fisherman's Mission helping the fishing industry through coronavirus

The year started with storm after storm, and, now with the coronavirus pandemic in full force, the fishing industry has been struggling. 

With restaurants and markets closed, Cornwall's fishing community is fighting against many losses and unpaid bills.

Julian Waring, from Porthleven, works with the charity Fisherman’s Mission to support the welfare of the fishing community. This charity not only provides a friendly voice, but offers advice to point people in the right direction for financial help. 

‘We have been working with the Cornish Fish Producer’s Organisation to help fisherman who are able to sell locally, which helps incredibly. Please, I ask that fishing communities get in touch so we can help’
