Charity Mussel Weekend

Charity Mussel Weekend: 3-5 May 2013

Frankie’s recently hosted a very successful ‘charity mussel weekend’ and Aubrey Jamieson, Superintendent of the RNMDSF in Shetland was presented with a cheque for £1175. Thank you to everyone for choosing the mussel recipes from our menu, for purchasing raffle tickets and donations received.

A special thanks to Janne & Kristian Johansson for travelling up from Glasgow and for kindly sharing their recipes taken from the menus at the Mussel Inn, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The Mussel Inn prides itself in using top quality seafood sourced from Scottish waters, which includes the MSC-accredited Blueshell Mussels, supplied via the Scottish Shellfish Marketing Group. 

The high quality sustainable mussels used were donated by Michael Laurenson of Blueshell Mussels, our local rope-grown mussel farmer. Michael Laurenson, said: “This weekend was about three businesses with strong provenance values coming together to encourage people to try a sustainable, versatile and quality product that is literally on their doorstep and, at the same time, raise money for RNMDSF.”

Our next fundraising event for the Fishermen’s Mission will be our annual charity cycle sportive which will be on Sunday 1st September – entry forms are available now!
