Two tonnes of tins delivered... in a Smart car!

This is Karen Dennis - who has delivered TWO tonnes of tins to help Cornwall's foodbanks.

The woman whose husband runs Smart Automotive has made five trips to Pirate FM - and all in a Smart car!

(Cue joke about how many tonnes of tins you can fit in a Smart car!)

It comes after DIY SOS star Nick Knowles recorded a video, encouraging locals to donate.

There are just seven days left to get your donations in for Pirate FM's Tonne of Tins appeal.

It runs until the end of February and our current total stands at not far off 12 tonnes!

"I think it's a good thing that Cornwall's pulled together because people have to wait to long to get money from the government; it's a poor thing these days.

"Get over to the supermarkets and they'll give you a hand; get as many as you can".

Karen Dennis
