Fish, Chips and Charity at 28 Sherborne Road

Is it really time for another Fish Friday again already!? This week at CHAC due to the popularity of the #nomakeup “selfies” that have been going around for Cancer Research this week and all of the great efforts for Sports Relief, we’ve been thinking about charitable giving. It would seem that Mr Thorpe, our fish and chip shop owner, was too a charitable man. This week we are showcasing a decorative certificate awarded to Mr Thorpe from Dr Barnardos Homes dated New Years Eve 1931 for a donation of £1 to the charities “food fund”.

We think that’s quite generous considering £1 works out to roughly £30 pounds! We’re feeling quite inspired by Mr Thorpe!
