Thursday 2nd June sees the launch of Outlook South West’s latest radio campaign with Cornwall’s Pirate FM.
The new airtime commercials will play out across the county and feature a beautiful track which has been written and performed by local girl Riley Jane Gifford.
Riley (aged 14) won Bude’s Got Talent after she wrote and sung the moving song to audiences in North Cornwall. Outlook came across the track when it appeared on the ‘I Give You Give’ website, where Riley uploaded it to help raise money for the Mental Health Foundation during Mental Health Awareness Week.
Outlook South West Communications Officer, Adam McPherson said: “We heard the track and loved it, but once we saw who it was written by and how it was being used to raise money and awareness for mental health, we thought it was even more perfect for our campaign with Pirate FM. Hopefully people will listen to the full song online and donate money to a very worthwhile cause. Equally, we hope that anyone who hears the commercials and needs help will also get in touch with us. It’s a moving song and lots of the lyrics relate very well to psychological wellbeing and the need to seek help when you need it.”
