It is hoped a holiday retreat inspired by a terminally ill little girl from Looe will become a reality by the end of the year.

Ellie Libby died from a rare brain disorder, just days before her 7th birthday.

Almost 400 thousand pounds has been raised for Ellie's Haven; the centre that will support families with long-term illness.

At her funeral yesterday, Dad Nigel paid tribute: "I want to tell you of a little girl who gave so much joy to her family even though she was severely disabled. Or really what I should say, is that she was just different from the rest of us".
