A pre-school on the Lizard Peninsula has set up a fundraising appeal to avoid the risk of closure.

St Keverne Charity Pre-school has children attending from the village itself as well as nearby Coverack and the surrounding areas.

However, with costs rising every year, the pre-school is hoping the community will give its backing to keep it going.

Emily Salvidge, part of the volunteer committee that manages the pre-school, said: "With inflation rising year on year and funding for early years not reflecting this increase, the pre-school may be at risk of closure.

"Members of the committee have worked hard to fundraise and the community has been kind to us, however we now need to extend our plea into the big wide world.

"Our village and those that surround us rely on having a setting such as this to help educate and develop our little people, preparing them for the smooth transition into reception and on to school.

"We would be truly grateful for any donations, and it would be absolutely amazing if we hit our goal."

The committee has set up an online fundraising page at gofundme.com/support-much-needed-rural-preschool where there is a goal to raise £6,000.

All the donations will help with running costs and equipment for the pre-school.

To help get the fundraising underway, a group of girls from the village held a bake sale, selling homemade cakes and as well as books and toys.

After two days of trading Charli, Kaira, Chelsi and Skye raised £105.65 for their efforts and are now planning another cake sale soon.
