Whitby fish and chip shop supports Cash for Coal campaign
11:48am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
A FISH and chip shop staff swapped shoals for coals to support the North Yorkshire Moors Railway as the two businesses worked side by side to shovel a 10-tonne coal delivery.
Staff at Quayside in Whitby helped to shovel the delivery into a steam engine at Grosmont Station.
Quayside head chef and director Stuart Fusco said: “The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is vital in bringing tourists to Whitby every day, but their daily costs are prohibitive.”
The Cash for Coal campaign is hoping to raise £350,000 towards fuel costs during the coming year. Currently, the line uses about 2,500 tonnes of coal each year to fuel its steam engines which run on the 24-mile stretch between Pickering and Whitby.
Philip Benham, general manager of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, said: “This donation will go a long way towards ensuring the railway continues to be enjoyed by future generations.”
Donations can be made on the trains or at any of the stations.
