DONATIONS to an appeal set up in memory of one of the five women killed in Suffolk were last night fast approaching the £12,000 target.

The Gemma's Gift appeal, launched on Boxing Day, is raising cash for the Ipswich Children's Hospice in memory of Gemma Adams, 25.

Last night the constantly changing total pledged by people from across the UK and beyond stood at £11,629.

Bosses at East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH), which runs the hospice, have said the funds will help provide a tremendous amount of care for terminally ill children.

And Brian Adams, Gemma's father, has spoken of his hope that the appeal would bring back the “feel-good factor” to Ipswich.

The community was left shocked by the deaths of Gemma, who lived in Blenheim Road, Ipswich, and the four other women found dead in the county before Christmas.
