THEATRE-goers in Felixstowe have brought the house down with a bumper donation to The Evening Star's Somebody's Daughter memorial fund.

Visitors to the Spa Pavilion were invited to make a contribution to the appeal, which was launched to prevent more young women from walking in the desperate footsteps of the five who were killed during December.

And their generosity has swelled the fund to the tune of £147.

Collection organisers at the Spa said they were delighted to support the cause.

The fund total currently stands at almost £20,000.
