Helen Lovell, mission port officer from the Fishermen's Mission in Brixham, was delighted to receive a cheque for £1,012.45 from the auction of a mixed box of fish from Georgina of Ladram's maiden trip.
It is a common tradition to put the boat in good stead for the future.
She arrived in Brixham on June 18 from Luyt BV boat builders in Den Helder, the Netherlands and is the latest, state-of-the-art beam trawler for the Waterdance fleet.
Helen is pictured with Trevor Sclater, skipper of Georgina of Ladram, and Barry Young, managing director of Brixham Trawler Agents.
Due to Covid-19, the trawler's christening has been postponed until later in the year.
However, the Fishermen's Mission has been embracing new technology during lockdown and she had prayers said for her and the crew during one of their weekly prayer meetings.
