Hospice will be a Little Harbour

Little Harbour
Little Harbour could be open in 2011

A new children's hospice to be built in Cornwall will be called Little Harbour, fund-raisers have announced.

Children's Hospice South West, which already has two hospices in the region, has raised more than 1.5m for the Precious Lives appeal.

It is hoped the eight-bed hospice will open its doors at Porthpean near St Austell in autumn 2011.

BBC Radio Cornwall listeners have been helping raise more than 220,000 for the unit.

Precious Lives founder Eddie Farwell said: "The location for the new hospice has given us our inspiration and we have taken the name from one of the translations of Porthpean.

"We have chosen to call our special third hospice Little Harbour, which is wonderfully apt for such a homely and caring place."
