MUST have Ipswich Town memorabilia has today been added to the growing list of lots which will be auctioned off to raise money for the Somebody's Daughter memorial fund.

A signed cap and a programme and menu from legendary Blues player Mick Mills' 1976 testimonial, has been donated by pensioner Beryl Bullock.

Mrs Bullock, of Elizabeth Way, Felixstowe, used to work with her husband in the club shop and was regularly invited to team events.

She won the cap at the dinner following Mills' testimonial match.

Mills was club captain during the successful Bobby Robson era.

His leadership also saw him made England captain during the entire 1982 World Cup campaign.

Mrs Bullock said: “I should have thought the older Ipswich Town fans and those who collect memorabilia will be very interested in owning something like this.

“I saw the signed Ipswich shirt which was donated by the club so I thought I would donate this.

“I think the fund is a very good idea. I have three granddaughters and you don't know what could happen to them.”

The items, along with other lots, will be auctioned on February 8 following a charity bowling night at Kingpin in Martlesham. To register a bowling team for the event, contact the centre on 01473 611111.

The Somebody's Daughter campaign has been launched to remember the victims of the red light district killings.

The proceeds will be used to help vulnerable young people in Ipswich.
