"Show her you care"

The Ipswich Evening Star has handed over £500 to launch a campaign to show support for a 92-year-old rape victim.

The Show Her You Care appeal is being jointly run between the newspaper and Sainsbury’s, the store where the pensioner shopped an hour before the attack.

The Star has already offered a reward for information leading to the arrest of the attacker, and Sainsbury’s boosted the bounty because staff and the local community were so appalled by what had happened.

Evening Star editor Nigel Pickover said: “We moved quickly to support the traumatised victim, offering a £1,000 reward, and Sainsbury’s have moved fast to match it.

“Now the battle is to raise funds to show the community is completely backing this poor vulnerable victim who has shown remarkable courage.”
