Pirate Trust, Giving a Helping Hand

About the Pirate Trust

Since 1992, The Pirate Trust has raised over half a million pounds, supporting causes in our area - and with your help, we've changed people's lives.

The Pirate Trust is Pirate FM's charitable arm, which aims to raise money and support projects, individuals and organisations across Cornwall, Plymouth and West Devon.

Every single penny raised by the trust, stays locally - helping people in our area.

But of course, none of this would be possible without your ongoing support. If you would like to help fundraise for The Pirate Trust, then we'd love to hear from you. 

The Pirate Trust is a registered charity - number 1032096.
