JACKPOT! The appeal to build a memorial to murdered schoolgirl Vicky Hall has today passed the £100,000 barrier.

Soon the tatty old buildings used by young footballers in Trimley St Mary as changing rooms will be replaced with a brand new modern sports pavilion to bear Vicky's name.

Today the trustees behind the appeal, which is spearheaded by The Evening Star, announced news of a fantastic £20,000 donation from a mystery benefactor and a £5,000 gift from Ipswich businessman Graeme Kalbraier.

It means that with the amazing fundraising effort already carried out by Star readers and pledges of grants from local councils and other organisations, the £100,000 milestone has been reached.
