Clever-clogs Tate claims a grand!
25th March 2014
A College Lecturer from Mevagissey is celebrating, after scooping a cool £1,000 on a popular radio competition.
Tate Richardson was picked at random to play Pirate FM's "£1,000 Minute", where he was challenged to answer 10 general knowledge questions in 60 seconds.
After breezing through the answers in record time, Tate was then given the option to double his money - all he had to do was answer one more to claim £2,000.
However, he decided to stick with his new-found wealth - walking away with a well-earned grand.
Speaking afterwards, Tate said: "It feels incredible - great privilege to be the first winner of 2014"
"I'm looking forward to a couple of stressful free months - my wife is certainly delighted also!"
