TEAMS are being sought to take part in a knock-out night of bowling staged in aid of the Somebody's Daughter memorial fund.

Kingpin in Martlesham is playing host to the charity evening on March 8 with all funds going to The Evening Star's appeal, launched in the wake of the red-light killings.

Already 13 teams have confirmed their attendance but there are still limited places available.

All teams have to do is collect a bucket from the Star offices in Lower Brook Street and do their best to fill it with donations before the night.

The memorial fund, which is being run in conjunction with Ipswich Borough Council, was launched following the killings of Gemma Adams, Tania Nicol, Anneli Alderton, Annette Nicholls and Paula Clennell.

The money raised will be used to help vulnerable young people in Ipswich by creating a refuge for those embroiled in a life of drug addiction and vice.
