Flying Home for Christmas

Flying Home for Christmas Winners

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 4:42pm 17th December 2013

Two Cornish schoolchildren are set to spend their first Christmas at home with their dad.

Cory Duggan has been working in New Zealand for years but flew back to Newquay Airport on Tuesday morning after winning Pirate FM's Flying Home for Christmas.

Tyler and Melody from Wadebridge thought he lived in the phone - because that is the only way they have ever been able to speak to him.

They reckon he is missed a lot: "The Christmas fair, the strawberry fair, my Christmas play and some other things. In the weekend, we normally talk to him on the phone."

Cory admits it has been difficult: "It's been tough. Life does take you in different directions and coming here today sort of makes you realise maybe I should have done something a little bit earlier but I'm here now."
