Fish pies will be the focus of a fundraiser to benefit the Blessing of the Fleet parade.
Hayden’s Pies will make and sell the pies on Thursday, December 14 from 6am in an effort to raise thousands of dollars for the annual festival.
Baker Hayden Bridger said 300 fish pies would be made, and sold for $6.50 each, with 30kgs of flathead donated from Lucky’s Seafood.
“I hope to raise about $2000 for the event,” Mr Bridger said.
“I have a son and a daughter who both love the parade. They think it is awesome. When I heard it was struggling financially, I wanted to do something to help out.
“Absolutely all of the money from the fish pies on December 14 will go to the parade. Fresh fish in fresh pies, you can’t go wrong.
“It is about giving back to the community and this great event.”
Lucky Forrest said he donated the local seafood because the festival had significant meaning to him.
“It will be first come, first served and as soon as they are gone, that’s it. Every single cent will go to the parade,” Mr Bridger said.
“We want everyone to get in and sell the pies out so we can raise as much money as possible for the blessing of the fleet committee so they can put on a good event.”
