Jonanthan and Mark Hollings, and Andrew Felton, have managed the fish and chip shop for six years.

They have also fund-raised for local causes, as well as charity Stand Up To Cancer.

Jonathan Hollings said: “We love doing it and we’ve raised a lot of money over the 15 years.

“But its got more elaborate as time has gone by. Next year we’re thinking of doing a raffle and bingo instead.”
