Can you help us buy a fabulous Fridge for our fine fresh fish?

Hi there

We are Devon Fish Box which I run by myself while my better half Roy braves the sea to catch fish and shellfish, on our day boat the Katy Jane, I try to cut out the middle man and sell some of his catch direct to the public. But our last hurdle we need an expenisve commercial fridge! Can you help us?

Devon Fish Box runs seperatley from our boat as I can't sell all our catch and I'm only a micro business. You can read all about us here ABOUT US

We are nearly complete with a new micro unit of 12 ft x 12ft which we have rennovated ourselves all out of our own pockets beacuse as a fishing family the bank just laughs at funding! It's taken three years just to get this far! The discards ban will mean we have to land everything we catch. So it's now more than ever we need to find outlets for our fish that does not fetch premium price on the open market.

We are so close to finishing the unit but really need a large commercial fridge, which cost over a £1000 each, we have saved some, but I can't seem to reach that last hurdle as the boat takes prority with repiars and mainteance and my business just doesn't earn enough, I could however be that much better if I could just have a larger fridge! It would mean we can fillet more of our fish, shuck our scallops ect and hopefully grow a little.
