Seafish and Grimsby Institute issue joint statement regarding the passing of former Young Seafood Chef of the Year Matt Campbell

08 June 2018

We were deeply saddened to hear of the untimely death of Matt Campbell. He was a winner of the UK Young Seafood Chef of the Year in 2008 as a part of a team from Kendal College. He went on to be a finalist in MasterChef: The Professionals in 2017. As a tribute to Matt we will be holding a Charity Auction at the competition finals next week. All proceeds will be going to the Brathay Trust which Matt generously supported.
