Pirate FM has become the first media company in the UK to sign up to an International Charter for Compassion.
The UKRD station has joined other Cornish businesses and organisations who are backing the new ‘Compassionate Cornwall’ Initiative and will help by spreading the word.
The Charter for Compassion was founded in 2008 by British author Karen Armstrong and Cornwall joined it in August this year. The station liked it so much when reporting on it, it joined the initiative itself.
Managing Director Mark Peters: “As a heritage business in this region we have a responsibility to support the local area. This is a great way to prove Pirate FM is a local business, fully connected to the economy and committed to the community.”
Tam said: “I have been stunned – and delighted – by the positive response from all kinds of people in Cornwall, and overwhelmed with the task of co-ordinating an initiative that I expected would grow slowly and has, in fact, snowballed into something huge in just three months.”
