A CHAIN of fish and chip shops hopes to raise money for a cancer charity with a special St George’s Day offer.

The Westbourne branch of Whistler’s Fine Fish and Chips will be selling portions of either fish and chips or sausage and chips in store for only £1.

Customers do not have to donate but boxes in the shops will be collecting money for the Anthony Nolan charity on the day (Monday, April 23).

Rana Denholm, 38, is one of the shop’s owners, she said: “Anthony Nolan is a charity close to our hearts having lost a family member to leukaemia.

“As a family we are looking to raise £10,000 this year for charity, hopefully we can also encourage people to sign up.

“It’s actually really easy to help people save lives by offering a sample.”

Anthony Nolan is a charity which matches blood stem cell and bone marrow donor samples to patients they have never met, desperately in need life-saving transplants.

Seventy per cent of patients needing bone marrow transplants will not find a matching donor from within their families.

For more information on the donating process, or to apply to join the register, visit www.anthonynolan.org or call 0303 303 0303.

Whistler’s Fish and Chips in Westbourne will be open 11.30am-2pm and 4.30pm-9.30pm.

The offer will also be available in the New Hayling Island branch.
