‘Pirates on Fire’ Event Proves A Great Success

The first ‘Pirates on Fire’ event held recently at Penryn RFC turned out to be a great success.

With 40 excited children participating, the day started with some game-based activities where an emphasis was on creativity in attack. Then, following a short break, the group was split into three and rotated round different stations. There were also two interactive workshops on promoting Fire Safety and understanding ‘Sugar Smart’ advice, and the morning ended with some skill acquisition.

After lunch the youngsters were joined by Cornish Pirates players Craig Mitchell, Tom Cowan-Dickie, Antonio Kiri Kiri and Kyle Moyle. This initially provided an opportunity for a Q&A session, after which the Cornish Pirates put the children through their paces with general team play that also saw the introduction of more technical aspects. All in all, it certainly made for a very busy day but also one much enjoyed – in the Cornish sunshine!

Shelley Jamieson, Healthy Lifestyles Delivery Advisor from Healthy Cornwall, said:

Healthy Cornwall were delighted to get involved in such a fantastic community event. It was a great opportunity to highlight key health promotion messages to children, to explore the negative effects of too much sugar on the body and to learn how to make Sugar Smart choices.

Cornish Pirates’ Community Engagement Manager Sam Teasdale also commented:

It was great to see three organisations (Fire Service, Healthy Cornwall and Cornish Pirates) coming together to achieve excellent outcomes – having fun, playing sport and improving the overall well-being of all involved! Keen to make this an annual event, already we can’t wait for next year!
