Children's Hospice Helps Over Thirty Families
3:22pm 4th April 2012
The true extent of the need for Cornwall's first children's hospice is revealed.
Little Harbour near St Austell has helped 33 families since it opened in December.
Pirate FM listeners helped raise the £5 million it took to build.
Founder Eddie Farwell is saying thank-you: "What listeners to Pirate I think should fully appreciate is what their generosity has meant to some people in the most unimaginable situations. We receive those compliments because of the care we're now able to give but I just wanted to pass those compliments on.
"We're coming across families who could've been using our service a number of years ago but because the journey with a very fragile child's so daunting up to north Devon or indeed Bristol, we just thought this is more than we can bear".
