Held in collaboration with Robin Hood’s Bay’s annual Victorian Weekend, 'Queen Victoria' will visit Fish Box on Bay Bank, the express-style fish and chip restaurant and takeaway owned by Fusco’s of Whitby, from 10.30am to 11.30am on Saturday (Dec 7).

All proceeds raised from the sales of hot drinks, cakes and mince pies throughout the morning will be donated to The Fishermen’s Mission, the national charity that works solely with both active and retired fishermen and their families; providing emergency and welfare support 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.

Adrian Fusco of Fusco’s of Whitby, said: “The Robin Hood’s Bay Victorian Weekend is a fantastic event that we look forward to taking part in every year.

The Fish Box prepares to welcome Queen Victoria!

"We’re excited to welcome ‘Queen Victoria’ to Fish Box once again and invite as many people as possible to join us to help raise vital funds for the Fisherman’s Mission, a charity we have supported for many years.”

Fish Box will also host a special prize-giving for pupils of Fylingdales C of E VC Primary School, who entered the Fish Box colouring in competition, with ‘Queen Victoria’ announcing the winners at 10.30am.
