Fishermens MissionThank you to all our customers who purchased a chip scoop and donated money to the Fishermen’s Mission. During 2016 Hopkins customer have helped raise an impressive £500 which has been donated directly to the Fishermen’s Mission to help the 63,000 working and retied fishermen in the UK.  

Fishing is the UK’s toughest and most dangerous peacetime occupation with an average 15 fishermen killed or seriously injured every year. The Fishermen’s Mission provides welfare and support to fishermen and their families 24 hours a day. They provide assistance to families of fishermen who have been killed injured or have been survivors of fishing boat accidents. They visit and support retired fishermen and their families at home or in hospital. Fishermen’s Mission provides vital welfare and support to the entire UK fishing community. 


If you haven't already bought a portion chip scoop they are available on our online shop or by calling the spares department. 

They are available in 3 different sizes. 


The scoops were the brain child of Lesley Graves and Des Anastasiou from Burton Road Chippy in Lincoln after they realised they were losing £300 a week on serving too large portions of chips. The bespoke chip scoops provide standard portion sizes to customers increasing margins and reducing waste.
