A LEADING prostitution support organisation today announced it is backing The Evening Star's Somebody's Daughter Memorial Fund.

The National Christian Alliance on Prostitution (NCAP) will help promote the fund, the proceeds of which will be used to help vulnerable young people in Ipswich.

NCAP is a collaborative network of more than 40 projects which work to provide routes out of the sex trade to men and women involved in prostitution in the UK.

NCAP affiliated projects work with in excess of 4,000 individuals involved in street prostitution. All five of the women who died were known to Ipswich's Bridge Project, an affiliate of NCAP.

The organisation also played an active part of the government's Paying the Price consultation, where it worked closely with the Home Office.

Mark Wakeling, from the NCAP, said the charity was delighted to back the campaign.

“We are glad to support the work of the Evening Star in promoting the “Somebody's Daughter” memorial fund,” he said.

“There has been much debate over the last week but it is essential we remember the lives of Annelie, Annette, Gemma, Paula and Tania.

“Each one was a special person and our thoughts and prayers go to all mourning their loss.”

Several hundred pounds have already been pledged to the fund which has been launched in conjunction with Ipswich Borough Council.

Special posters have been created and are now available for readers and businesses to display in their windows.
