The Cornish parents battling to build a centre for disabled children admit the clock is ticking on their dream.

Nigel and Julie Libby have bought the site for Ellie's Haven near Looe.

It is in memory of their own two children.

But they have to raise a hundred thousand pounds by the end of the year to get hold of the rest of the funding they need. Nigel told Pirate FM: "We're getting the doors of Ellie's Haven open so these children, their families, their brothers and sisters can all come and have that special time together which we unfortunately couldn't have but these families desperately need."

Julie added: "It's so important because, having two disabled children ourselves who have sadly passed away, it is so hard to find somewhere to stay and to feel comfortable and the families here will meet other families."
