Rockfish Exeter raise £8,500 for The Wave Project
In Mental Health Awareness Week, a Devon restaurant has done its bit for children’s mental health by donating over £8,000 to our surf therapy projects.
The Exeter branch of restaurant chain Rockfish raised £8,522 for the charity by inviting customers to donate £1 with every meal.
The funds raised will support our evidence-based surf therapy programme in Devon, which helps children improve confidence and social skills through surfing.
Restaurateur and food writer Mitch Tonks, who owns Rockfish, said: “I’m so happy that we as a business can still support our nominated local charity, Wave Project Exeter, even during this pandemic when normal service and normal operating of clubs like Wave are suspended.
“The work they do is vital and we want to be part of helping them to survive, when life is back to normal their work in our community in Exeter will be needed more than ever.”
