National Fish and Chip Day is back and it’s bigger than ever!
From Neoda President Gary Lewis
The biggest day on the fish and chip calendar is back! National Fish and Chip Day 2021 will return for the sixth year on Friday 4th June!
The event has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2015 and, despite the restrictions, nearly 50 million people would have seen, heard or read about the awareness day last year. National TV, radio and newspapers featured stories, as did the regional media. Social media was awash with fish and chip stories with our hashtag, #nationalfishandchipday, and was number 1 on Twitter from 8am and stayed there all day long!
We are kicking off this year’s campaign with an Early Bird offer on our must-have National Fish and Chip Day merchandise. Don’t miss your chance to get your hands on our best selling t-shirts, available in S, M, L, XL, 2XL and 3XL in red, white, blue and new for 2020 – black (pics attached) and caps which will be available again in black or red. These t shirts are undated so can be used again and again. Order before the end of April to get hold of yours with a generous 10% discount.
Merchandise can be ordered online at the National Fish and Chip Day website www.nationalfishandchipday.org.uk. Also on the website are downloadable posters to print and display, plus logos, social media headers, a press release template for you to add details to and circulate to your local press and a Campaign Toolkit packed full of ideas and hints and tips for getting the most from National Fish and Chip Day 2021.
Speaking about last year’s event, Gary Lewis said “National Fish and Chip Day 2020 was always going to be very different to previous years and none of us really knew what to expect. The focus this year was very much on the resilience of the fish and chip sector and wow…did that shine through on the day! We were completely bowled over by the number of shops, both those who have previously celebrated the day with us, but especially the many, many new shops, who got involved in any way they could. National and Regional media – TV, Radio and newspapers – were awash with stories of how shops were celebrating the day and social media was full of amazing competitions, activities and photos – exactly what National Fish and Chip Day is all about! We are delighted that so many shops, who have been so hard hit by the pandemic, embraced their special day and threw everything they had at it! No matter what unfolds in the coming months, fish and chips will remain at the centre of every community and we are delighted to be able to bring this very special awareness day to the nation again in 2021”
