Local radio station Pirate FM is launching an on-line auction appeal to raise money for the Disaster Emergency Committee’s Haiti appeal under the name “Hope for Haiti”.
Pirate FM will be joining other radio stations from both within parent company UKRD and also from other operators in the UK to auction off lots from Simon Cowell, the cast of Coronation Street, Aardman Animations and record companies including Sony, Polydor, Mercury and Island records.
The online auction will reach a potential audience of over two million people.
Pirate FM’s Managing Director, Beverley Warne, said: “It’s fantastic that Pirate FM can really make a difference to the lives of people in Haiti. There’s already been an amazing response to the DEC’s appeal and we’re hoping the people of Cornwall West Devon and Plymouth can just do that little bit more to boost the fundraising effort.
“We’re expecting the lots to be really popular – there’s everything from Simon Cowell’s suit to one of only ten copies of signed Take That artwork and even a Coronation Street script signed by the cast.”
The auction will be launched on Tuesday February 2, three weeks to the day after the devastating earthquake hit Haiti. To get involved please visit the website.
