A former newspaper journalist will see her photography go on show to the public for the very first time in October. The Gallery @ The Mussel Inn, Hope Street, Glasgow will host Laura Coventry’s debut photography exhibition from 6 October, 2011. After years of writing for a national newspaper, Laura hopes her new take on life, which forms a creative and quirky collection, will inspire and entertain diners. The Glasgow fish restaurant also hosts its annual Ladies Charity Lunch and Fashion Show on 9 October, 2011.
Raising funds for the Fishermen’s Mission, the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen, there’s a Latin dancing troupe, a prize-packed grand raffle and goodie-bags as well as a bubbly and a two-course meal. Over 13,000 people work in the UK’s toughest and most dangerous peacetime occupation: deep sea fishing. At sea, they face death and injury on a daily basis. All the proceeds from the £25-per-head event will go to the Fishermen’s Mission which provides emergency and welfare support to fishermen and their families 24/7.
