Cornwall raises a smile for terminally ill children this Christmas.

Pirate FM has delivered thousands of toys to Little Harbour near St Austell, handed in through the Pirate FM Toy Appeal.

We do not know the exact number but there were so many, we had to store some in our studios because the warehouse was full.

Newquay Garden Centre was one of more than a hundred drop-off points from Penzance to Bude.

Heather works there and says signing up was a no-brainer: "It's been absolutely incredible. They've had customers piling in and in fact even now the boxes are gone, they're still coming back with more. So yeah, it's been fabulous."

AWB Textiles in Stratton was also one of the collection stations.

Spokesman Steve Salt was keen to sign up because his granddaughter and family use the sister hospice in north Devon: "It makes a tremendous difference. The Children's Hospice is a fantastic charity and the three hospices in the group are just marvellous places for children to spend Christmas."

Lizzy Griffiths from Helston attends Little Harbour with her eleven year old son Thomas for respite breaks.

She said: "Thomas likes to unwrap presents and he was drawn to present in lovely red Christmas paper, he was allowed to choose one, he has no speech but he was able to sign a big thank you, he was absolutely delighted.

"Just to see the joy on Thomas' face, because every Christmas that goes by we don't know if it will be Thomas' last, so every special moment, seeing him happy, is a special moment for the family, and yesterday was one of those moments."
