Giving back to the local community
Supporting The Local Community
We are big believers in giving back and setting the best example to businesses in Kent. Over the Newington Fish Bar’s history, we have helped local football clubs and schools with their events. On occasions, we have held charity days in partnership with our local radio station and their big blue bus.
We continue to support the RNLI. Holding regular fundraising days with their crew. Read about our latest RNLI charity day.

RNLI Charity Day
We held our second RNLI day over the Platinum Jubilee weekend. We were joined by the Ramsgate Carnival Queen and Princesses, and the Mayor of Ramsgate.
This fantastic event raised £358 to help the RNLI save lives at sea.
Reaction to government ruling
Free school meals for kids
During these very difficult and challenging times, at Newington Fish Bar we were very disappointed the government did not support the motion for free school meals for half-term. Therefore we offered all children of school age free sausage and chips Monday to Friday at lunchtimes for a limited time in October 2020.
Our free sausage and chips for all Children was a huge success giving out over 600 meals.
We would like to say a big thank you to LR Smiths and sons potato farmers, McWhinney Sausages of Ireland for Generously donating their produce and the staff of Newington fish bar, Nigel.

Bush Tucker Trial
We held a “Bush Tucker Trial” like the TV show – I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here – cooking a selection of delicacies for our customers to try for a donation to alfiestrust.com.
The only way to find out if they were the real thing was to try one:
– Kangaroo Testicles
– Witchetty Grubs
– Fermented Eggs
– Vomit Fruit
Events From Over The Years
In our 42-year history, we’re proud to have supported many local causes and held events promoting their missions. Below are a few pics and newspaper cuttings that we dug up from our very old cameras. Nostalgia anyone?
