Sudbury shop's fish art display raises awareness for auction in aid of fishing community charity
A gentleman’s outfitters in Sudbury has backed an auction in aid of a fishing community charity, by spreading the word through an artistic display in its shop window.
Three painted ceramic fish have been displayed in the window of Peddars in North Street to help raise awareness of an online charity auction of 100 similar fish, which have been decorated by celebrities and artists.
The funds raised will go towards Fishermen’s Mission, an organisation that aims to help the most vulnerable, distressed and disadvantaged people in fishing communities, including those on the East Anglia coastline, and their families.
Matt Warnock, owner of Peddars in Sudbury, said: “This mini shoal of Catch of the Day fish have really made an impact.
“Customers and the passing public have stopped to look and enjoy them and we are delighted to be able to support such a great charity through this display.”
