Have a chipper time on the Mayor's Cruise

Release Date: 18 April 2017

Tickets are still available for a charitable cruise up the Thames to beautiful Hampton Court and back that aims to raise a smile and cash for the Mayor's Charity.

The annual Mayor’s Fish and Chip Cruise will set sail on Wednesday 26 April.

Tickets are just £20 per person. This includes a fish and chip supper, complimentary drink and cruise along the Thames on the Yarmouth Belle.

The cruise will board at St Helena Pier, Richmond at 6pm, leaving promptly at 6.30pm and will return at 10pm.

The event will raise money for the Mayor’s charity, Integrated Neurological Services, who provide long-term support for people with a neurological condition and for their families and carers.

There will also be a raffle - with prizes donated from The Petersham Hotel, David Lloyd and Kew Gardens.

Richmond’s Mayor, Cllr David Linnette, said:

“The Mayor’s Fish and Chip Cruise is always a wonderful event and raises funds for a very important local charity. I hope that as many people as possible can come on board for a bit of fun, tasty food and help me raise some much needed money for INS.”
