A charity auction will help raise money for the Victim Support charity in memory of two murdered teenagers.

Samantha Sykes, 18, and Kimberley Frank, 17, were stabbed to death by Ahmad Otak on March 9, 2012.

Otak, 22, was jailed for life in November the same year for the Eastmoor killings

The charity auction, has been organised by Kimberley’s cousin Emma Denny, together with family and friends.

Miss Denny said: “It’s shaping up to be a good night and it’s just one of a number of things we are planning in memory of these beautiful girls, including running the London Marathon.

“We hope as many people will come along as possible.

“Kim and Samantha were victims of a tragic death.

“Both will always be remembered by family, friends and everyone else whose lives they touched. We hope to help others before its too late.”

The event takes place tonight (Saturday) at the Balne Lane Working Men’s Club from 7pm, with a £1 entry fee per person.

As well as the auction, there will be a performance by singer Georgina Stakes and the opportunity to buy a wish lantern.

Victim Support helps people overcome the impact of crime by providing emotional and practical help.

Both victims and witnesses receive help from the charity’s 5,500 trained and locally based volunteers.
