SHOPPERS using a major Ipswich supermarket this weekend can make a donation to an appeal aimed at improving the lives of vulnerable young people.

Somebody's Daughter memorial fund collection buckets will be left behind tills at Sainsbury's in Warren Heath all day on Saturday and Sunday.

It is hoped several hundred pounds will be collected over the course of the weekend, all of which will go directly to the fund.

It is the second occasion the store has backed the appeal. Earlier this month, petrol station staff collected more than a thousand pounds in little more than a fortnight during December and January.

The cash was donated by petrol station customers and was collected in a single bucket.

A spokesman for Sainsbury's said: “We are delighted to back the campaign and we hope our customers will give generously to such an important and worthy cause.”

Also collecting is Tesco at Copdock, where buckets have been left in the petrol station, the customer services desk and the cigarette counter.

The Somebody's Daughter memorial fund was launched in conjunction with Ipswich Borough Council in the wake of the killings of Gemma Adams, Tania Nicol, Anneli Alderton, Paula Clennell and Annette Nicholls.

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

Evening Star editor Nigel Pickover said: “We ask customers to dig deep to help boost this very worthy appeal.”
