Buccaneers and scallywags waved the Jolly Roger and had fun walking the plank during ‘Talk Like A Pirate’ day at Highdowns, a rural service for people with learning disabilities near Camborne, Cornwall.

Service manager, Jenna Betts, said: “Today is ‘International Talk Like A Pirate Day’ so we’ve all given it a bit of the old heave-ho to plan a fun-filled pirate-themed day as a fundraiser in aid of MIND.

“We were ho-ho-hoping for a good turn-out, having invited quite a number of landlubbers – friends and family – to join us for the day, and we weren’t disappointed.

“Fancy dress was optional, but our service users love the excuse to dress up, so there have been a lot of eye-patches, pirate hats and skulls and cross-bones around today.
