Pirate FM Listeners rally around flood-hit Chacewater family

17th January 2014

Flood Family
 
The kindness and generosity of a local family has helped a mother and children they didn’t even know, in their time of need.
 
Carly Lobb from Chacewater and her family were shocked on new Years’ Day to find that their house had been flooded – for the second time in less that a year.
 
The water included sewage, which ruined the kitchen and all it’s appliances. Also, most heartbreakingly, it ruined the Christmas presents of her children Rhys (7), Kian (3) and Freya (7 months).
 
Pirate FM received a phone call from Carly's sister, who told Breakfast Show presenters Neil and Tina about the situation – and revealed that because of a flood last year, they were unable to get insurance, meaning that all of the ruined items weren’t covered.
 
Listening to her story on the radio, was Tabitha Hoskin from Mawgan and her children Kitty (5) and Samuel (3).
 
“The children just said to me, we’d like to give those children our Christmas presents” said Tabitha. 
 
"So I thought, well, if they can do that, then I must be able to do something to help them too.”
 
Tabitha decided to take on a mammoth mission, approaching businesses in the area to help replace the lost items, and refurbish the house after the devastating flood.
 
So many businesses had heard about Carly and her family on Pirate FM, that they were more than happy to help them out when approached – donating over £600 of items to the family to help them get back on their feet.
 
“We would just like to thank Pirate FM for their kindness, and all the businesses who have donated to my family.” said Carly.
 
"Also to the kind people out there who have helped, especially Kitty and Samuel - two special little children."
 
Tina Bessell from the Breakfast Show said: “We must say a huge thank you to Tabitha and her family for their selfless efforts to help another family in need, as well as all the contributors.
 
"Since hearing about it, more listeners have got in contact with us with offers of furniture, kitchen appliances and anything else the family might need. 
 
"We live in the most amazing place in the world, with the most amazing people who are happy to support their community in times of need. It’s a real privilege to have been a part of this heartwarming story."

Neil and Tina try Zumba Dancing and Spinning

17th January 2014

After failing his 2013 resolution to get fit, and lose some weight, Neil was challenged by listener Helen to try out Zumba and Spinning, at Carn Brea Leisure Centre in Pool.

Tina came along for moral support (and a bit of a laugh at Neil's expense!)

How do you think he got on then?

Thank you so much to the lovely team at Carn Brea Leisure Centre for looking after Neil and Tina so well... and for not laughing at Neil (too much!).

Welcome to 2014

2nd January 2014

Happy New Year!

Neil and Tina are back - along with the Secret Sound - now worth £200 and even easier and your daily weekday chance to win on the Thousand Pound Minute Quiz!

But first up, #morninghardone

No winner as no-one knew the body shape of 6/10 women - the answers were funny however, and Neil learned more about women in 15 mins than he ever knew before!

Have a listen!

  Neil Caddy's 2013 resolution - weigh in

Is it even worth making 2014 New Year's resolutions? 

Neil started the show believing he'd been 50% successful on Getting Fit (fail) and Losing Weight (success - he thought!) until the BIG WEIGH IN.

Tina has a family tradition of using a letter from the alphabet to help choose the New Year resolution. 2013 was 'N' and 'Never Say Never' which led her to Quad Bike tricks with the Kangaroo Kid at the 2013 Royal Cornwall Show, Monster Truck Driving with the Marie Curie Ladies Driving Challenge at RAF Porthtreath, dressing up as Princess Leia and Wonder Woman for the Totally 80s party. SUCCESS

This year the letter is 'O' and she's chosen to enjoy the Outdoors!  Hubbie JB has other ideas!

Have a listen!
