Get Abigail to the World Dwarf Games in Canada

4th May 2016

Abigail  Birch with  Warwick  DaviesNeil and Tina chat to Abigail Birch who is just 13 years old, trains with Jo and Cornwall Athletics Club, and is a sprinter bringing home gold in the 40m and 60m sprints.

Abigail suffers from a form of dwarfism, and wants to be judged on her ability rather than her disability.

Selected for Team GB, Abigail hopes to compete in the World Dwarf Championships, but needs to fundraise, so if you can donate, she'd be most grateful.

We reveal the Local Heroes Winners

25th April 2016

Neil and  Tina 2016  Local  HeroesLocal Heroes 2016

Neil and Tina had the very great honour of hosting the 2016 Pirate FM Local Heroes awards at the Tregenna Castle Resort in association with South-West Bottled Gas.

You can see all the winners videos and photos from the red carpet online.

The evening kicked off in fine style with Stooshe performing live for our guests, completely blowing us away with their vocals.


Neil and Tina caught up with 84 yr old Rosalind Austen from Newquay who won Parent of the Year at the interval.

14 year old Jordan Haines from Roche exhibited astonishing bravery to win, and this Bravery award may be the moment he turns his life around.

At the end of the ceremony - there was a lovely moment when Jordan came across to congratulate 7 year old Finn Mitchell, who won the Inspiration to Others award

A very humbling night, and emotional too as 771 Squadron received a standing ovation as the Winner of Winners of Pirate FM's local Heroes awards - of course very emotional for Tina as he mother was rescued by the very same crew including Lt Cdr Andy Watts from Bryher when she had a sudden brain haemorrhage and subsequently passed away.

If you're having a bad day - go watch the videos of all the winners - and you are bound to feel uplifted.

Thank you
