Homeless couple in their car

4th November 2015

Weeks ago, we signed up to the Eden Project Sleepout on 19 November.

After news headlines about the number of kids expected to be homeless over Christmas, we heard from a couple who have been sleeping in their car for the last 7 months.

With their permission, we met the couple, and here's what happened..

We (and they) are overwhelmed by all the offers of support and your outpourings of generosity.

It's not possible to join the Eden Project Sleepout as they've reached capacity, but you can support the local homeless charity St Petroc's Society with a donation via this link.

Thank you.

Our hearts melted today when we spoke to a very honest couple of how they have resorted to sleeping in their car, for the past 7 months.

Here's the story and the responses we received.


If you would like to join the Eden Project Sleepout on Thursday 19 November, and raise awareness and money for homelessness charities, please click this link.  We would love you to join us.

Neil could be the new Milk Tray man...

22nd October 2015

Milktray man  NeilCould Neil be the next Cadbury's Milk Tray Man?

Tristan entered Neil to be the next Cadbury's Milk Tray man - we help him fill in the application form

Or could it be a woman?

It seems that we need to do a supporting video - so we came up with suggestions!

Do you think he looks the part?

Text suggestions included:

The milk tray man fought off sharks to deliver the chocolates but we wouldn't do that to you so I thought you could go to Gweek seal sanctuary and roll around in one of there pools with the seals and with them looking for a date online you might get lucky at the same time ha ha from Kathryn caddy (no relation)

Mr Neil Milk Tray. Have a go on the Zip Wire at Menheniot. Tim Penzance

Hi Neil Tina how about zip wiring over eden in dinner suit best wishes Caroline Fourpaws grooming nr Helston xx

Hi guys. I reckon Neil should do a Poldark parody for Milk Tray. Galloping along the Cornish cliff top, shirt billowing, hair flowing (?) Astride a magnificent stallion. From Shell in Redruth

and on TWITTER

Keep those suggestions coming!
