It was £474.70, which I know sounds strange since it was £1 a ticket, but people were just putting money in too.

POSTING FROM THE S.O.P.H.I.E. MYSPACE BULLETIN

The funeral of Sophie has been arranged for the 12th November and her mother has extended an invitation to all her friends here. She has requested a show of solidarity from all those who knew Sophie or have been touched by her terrible death.

A humanitarian service will take place at the Riverside Civic Centre in Whitworth, Rossendale at 11am, followed by a burial ceremony at the cemetery there.

Sylvia has requested people come as "themselves" and bring only one flower. If anyone would like to make a donation to the S.O.P.H.I.E. fund instead they can do so through the Paypal account we are about to set up on this site or directly into the account number 00458724 sort code 11-06-44. All funds will be used to meet the objectives made. To leave a permanent legacy in Sophie's memory in the forms of a memorial and the

campaign.

please come if you can

Just to keep you all updated, the 5 charged with the murder of Sophie Lancaster were in Preston Crown Court today and have had their trial date set for the 10th March. They have a plea hearing on the 14th December.

best wishes and thanks to all at Whitby Goth weekend and their friends who raised a staggering £2800 to pay for the bench in Sophie's memory up there, especially to Martin "Oldgoth", it was a pleasure to meet people there.

bye for now
Kate

Thanks for posting that GC, I'd love to get there but I don't think I can get time off work, and I doubt they'll let me go since it's not family...

In other news I've had a few more donations from the US, another UK donation of £45 and £100 is winging it's way though from the Stormtroopers that we're collecting money for charity. I make the new total £3005!

Over three grand!

We will be there.
Do you have a more specific address (including postcode) to help us find the funeral venue?

I read that on Myspace just a few moments ago but, like OldGoth, I doubt I'd be able to get time off work to go, though I'd love to be there to give my support.

I'll be there on the day, just not in person.

Bless her.

Definitely. It's going to be a very distracting day at work.

Oldgoth, are your employers aware of your magnificent achievements regarding the collection and memorial? Surely if they knew, they couldn't refuse you the day off.

Actually, OldGoth, MrMrsHedgehog has a point there. What's the name of your employer, and do they have email :D We could send them all the details and they'd have to let you go.
