    Week 1 update

    Ok, its midday Thursday (in the UK at least) which means that week 1 of the Frances Coles Memorial Appeal ended yesterday. Therefore, it is time for our first weekly update...

    As of yesterday evening the total raised thus far was an impressive 175 pounds, or to put it another way just over 1/3 of our nominal target for both elements of the appeal, and no less than 2/3 of the proposed cost of the memorial itself.

    It is of course unrealistic to expect donations to continue at this kind of pace, but to put it into a bit of context that means we have already satisfied my vague monthly target (based on raising 500 pounds) of 85 pounds a month, not only for this month but next month aswell! If we were to continue at the slower pace from now on we would exceed the target by nearly 200 pounds; even if we were not to garner any more funds this month and then do so we would be looking at exceeding the target by 100.

    This is incredible news and I cannot thank everyone who has contributed enough.

    Trevor.

They have a Domestic Violence project which I am sure would be be very greatful for any donation you might be able to give. It is directly opposite Dilston Grove, where I believe Catherine Eddowes daughter lived, and may have been one of the last places she visited. Hope this is of help to you.
    Thanks for that Eastender, I will definitely look into that. I actually plan to visit Dilston Grove as part of research for another project soon, for the Annie Phillips (nee Conway) connection which you are quite correct about, so I may even get in touch before then and see if I can meet with them for a chat while I'm there. Well done!

    If anyone has any other suggestions then feel free to chuck them my way.

    A big THANK YOU to donor number 3, on day number 3 (not bad eh?) - Mr Chris Phillips. Cheers Chris - who I was replying to a message from shortly after I left the East London Cemetery whilst thinking this very idea over for the first time.

    First weekly update to come on Weds next week, think it might be a VERY good one if we keep going at this rate... Come on people, let's get going with a bang! Keeping it under my hat for now in the hope of a surprise total next week.

    I second that Simon - a very noble action, for which much credit should go to Don, Jenni and co. Top stuff.

    Simon,

    I don't know about Ripper walks and other ventures, but in April, with our initial issue of Casebook Examiner, we pledged to donate annually our net income to a suitable charity. This is, I think, a first in the field.

    Editor - Examiner.
