A CHRISTMAS carol concert has given a festive boost to a crucial charity appeal.
The annual event, staged at Ipswich's St Margaret's Church, raised £600 for the Somebody's Daughter appeal.
The cash will be added to the spiralling fund total and eventually used to fund a safe house where those embroiled in prostitution and vice can seek help and support.
The fund was launched after last year's red-light killings, in which five women died.
