A charity campaign to build a holiday centre for sick children in Cornwall has reached a major milestone.

Ellie's Haven was inspired by little Ellie Libby from Looe, who died from a rare genetic condition.

Now the charity has bought a building in Duloe, having raised £420'000 since it started in 2007.

Dad Nigel has said thank-you: "I don't think there's enough words to express our gratitude. These people have given through our children, the charity and the hopes for the future of providing something for families that desperately need as much support as they can to have a family life, like we all wish for."

The charity needs to raise more money before construction work can start.

Trustees are hoping Ellie's Haven will be able to offer free holidays from Spring 2015.
