Terminally Ill Children In Cornwall Get A Christmas Appeal

(Updated 4:33pm 13th November 2014)
Pirate FM is launching a Christmas Toy Appeal for terminally ill children in Cornwall.
We are being urged to buy and donate new toys to families using Little Harbour near St Austell.
100 businesses from Bude to Penzance have signed up as drop-off points.
The message is 'Raise a Smile' for children, brothers and sisters.
Emma Lloyd-Cowell from Children's Hospice South-West, she said: "Every single one of us knows how precious life is, and we should live every day like it is our last, but that is the reality every single day for so many families in Cornwall, and this could be their last Christmas with their child.
"The relationships within the family for a family with a life-limited child are under so much pressure every single day, and that is very much true for the parents but equally the brothers and sisters, who go through so all sorts of mixed emotions knowing what is going to happen to their families."
You can see the list of drop-off points here.
