WE promised to never forget them - and today a charity launched in memory of five women killed in Ipswich announced a breakthrough in the battle to end prostitution.

The Somebody's Daughter appeal, launched in the wake of Steve Wright's campaign of murder, has pledged thousands of pounds to two organisations set up to crack the lethal cycle of vice and addiction.

The cash - generously donated by Evening Star readers - will be used to help many of the most vulnerable women in Ipswich.

Appeal trustee and former Ipswich Town chairman David Sheepshanks said: “Somebody's Daughter was set up with the primary aim of creating a safe haven and support for vulnerable young women.

“I am delighted that we are now able to make these grants that go a considerable way to realising our objectives.”
