A FELIXSTOWE nightspot is continuing its bid to raise money in memory of two teenagers killed in a fire.

Robert Giles, 18, from the town's Holland Road, and his friend, William Stokes, 19, from Bawdsey, died when fire took hold of Mr Giles's flat in August.

The Evening Star launched a memorial appeal to raise money for the families of the boys, which so far stands at more than £1,000.

The owners of Central Park nightclub threw a fancy dress party to boost the fund. Revellers dressed in St.Trinians' outfits and managed to raise £77 for the fund.

Manager Lorraine Moseley said that because they had hoped to raise more than that, there would be a bucket on the bar until Christmas for drinkers to put their spare change into.
