We take a keen interest in local charities that focus their attentions on investment and development of young people. By helping The Boathouse Youth we’re hoping that it will help to provide them with chances and opportunities in life they may not have received before

– AM Seafoods –


The Boathouse Youth is proud to present AM Seafoods as a Gold Corporate Patron. This means that AM Seafoods make a monthly donation to help improve the facilities, resources and services of The Boathouse Youth.

Scott & Mark Merrick, Directors of the Luxury Shellfish company, are both delighted to be supporting our organisation.

It is fantastic news for The Boathouse Youth that AM Seafoods have become part of our story. We are determined to become powered by local businesses by demonstrating to them the impact that positive youth work can have on the future of a young person.

We currently operate provision in the South Shore and Grange Park communities of Blackpool. Our average weekly admissions figure always exceeds 380 children and young people. The support of AM Seafoods has come at a really great time as we are now considering expansion into other communities of Blackpool and the surrounding areas.


Being a Corporate Patron of The Boathouse Youth isn’t just about making a financial contribution towards our operational and project costs. It’s so much more than that. It’s about developing a relationship between your company and our charity to benefit the childhoods and future adulthoods of our young people.

Children and young people from The Boathouse Youth enjoyed an introductory visit to AM Seafoods factory in Fleetwood as we started our journey of partnership together. They experienced ‘spiking’ a crab and watching it be cleaned, cooked and then packaged. They were also able to taste this delicacy – a first for them all!

Scott Merrick, Director, lead our exclusive guided-tour together with one of his employees, Tracy.

We are now looking forward to inviting AM Seafoods, along with other patrons, to spend a day in the life of a BHY child.
