A FORMER publican is calling for help to fund a bench and plaque in memory of local youngster Kai Guttridge.
Kai was left severely disabled by an accident aged 2 and died in October 2012 at the age of 7.
Eddie Rogers, who ran the Humphry Davy pub in Penzance for many years, is urging the town's other licensed premises to raise funds to help Kai's parents Mark and Nikki buy a bench and plaque for his grave, which is in the Woodland Burial Place at Drift.
Nikki said: "Kai was much loved and he's always in our thoughts; he was such a cheeky little chappy. We're trying to save up for a plaque and bench and are very grateful that Eddie's keen to help out."
Mr Rogers said: "It would be great to get something to remember Kai and I'd ask any pubs willing to help out to ring me with any ideas they might have for raising money."
Mr Rogers can be contacted on 07517 204982.
