Pirate FM is running a Christmas campaign to support Children's Hospice South-West with Flying Start Nurseries for the 2015 Toy Appeal.

Neil and Tina spoke to 5 year old Alex about his donation, using his pocket money.

Wow - what a lovely thing to do. If you'd like to find out how you can get involved, please follow this link - and thank you.

What's Going On?

And Neil and Tina got talking about crazy sights in Cornwall, after a penguin was allegedly spotted in Looe, and we know there is a Unicylist that commutes around Redruth.  We had great calls, including these from June and Clint!

Anti- Bullying Week (17-23 Nov 14)

To kick off anti-bullying week, we invited Amy Jones into the studio as she continues her Stay Strong UK campaign to support victims of bullying and parents of those bulied.

Amy had some top tips which are worth a second listen.


Bottom line: If you are being bullied - tell someone and get help.

Bonkers Charity Fundraising

It's Children in Need day so a lot of people are doing fundraising - well done one and all.

Tina once drove a Nissan Bluebird Banger from Cornwall to Calais to take part in a a charity Barcelona Banger event dor Forces charities.

Listener Truck Bri once commentated from inside a competing car on a Demolition Derby, until he was dragged semi-conscious from the car!  It was all in aid of the Pirate Trust.

And Debbie Hunt had her head shaved for charity for Alzeheimers in memory of her dearly departed mum.  She's still fundraising despite having reached over £1800, and click here for her story, pictures and just giving page.  Her hair was even donated ot the Little Princessses charity that make real hair wigs for kids with cancer.

The Christmas Toy Appeal

12th November 2014

What story do you dine out on?

Neil had a night out with the big bosses, and it turns out that 'Mark' who was part of the meal had a a popstar background.  Anyone remember this?

Tina was lucky enough to go to the Millies and sat beside The Who's Roger Daltry (and even ate his dinner!), but her husband JB, back in the late 80s once sat beside Princess Diana for Lunch on an official military visit, as she didnt want to sit on the Top Table with all those fuddy duddies!

The Christmas Toy Appeal

We were lucky enough to be joined in the studio by Emma Lloyd-Cowell, Head of fundraising for Children's Hospice South-West.

To find out more, the locations of all the toy collection points and to watch the video, click this link.

Thank you for your support, for an amazing cause.
