A funding plea from Cornwall's children's hospice as it celebrates its first birthday.

Bosses say it will cost nearly £2 million a year to keep Little Harbour running.

The centre near St Austell is helping more than 55 families with life-limited children.

Fundraiser Emma Lloyd says they are getting busier all the time:

“We are making a massive difference. This time last year, just as we opened, we didn’t know how many families would come through in the first six months. We exceeded what we thought we would do in the first 12 months in the first 6 months of operation and sadly that’s never going to go away.

“Fundraising is very challenging because people don’t have as much money to give but actually Cornwall is the most generous community. They always say that those that have the last give the most and that is so true of Cornwall.”
