No-one should require the needs of a Foodbank, but the reality is, a lot of people in Cornwall are relying on them.  More than ever before in fact.  That has to change...

Pirate FM are launching our Tonne of Tins appeal this week and Cornwall, we need your help!

The aim is simple - we want to raise awareness for the Foodbanks across Cornwall (and beyond) and donate as much tinned food as we possibly can - with the help of you!

We are going to use every platform that we have available in order to help support the work that our amazing foodbanks do.  They are relying on the people of Cornwall more than ever before so let's join together and help those in a less fortunate position.

So, what are we asking?

All we ask is that next time you are out shopping, simply pick up an extra tin or 2 (or however many you like) and drop them into one of our donation points across the Duchy.

Why are we doing this?

Figures have revealed that a rising number of struggling families are relying on foodbanks in Cornwall.  In this day and age, no-one should be forced to visit a foodbank but unfotunately, more and more people are.  That is the reality.

So Pirate FM have decided to use what resource we have and have teamed up with various partners across Cornwall in a bid to ease the pressure on Cornwall's foodbanks.

How you can get involved...

Simply donate as many tins as you can to one of the donation points below.

If you're a business and want to get involved in helping with this promotion, please give us a call on 01209 314400 or email reception@piratefm.co.uk.
