Donations to a campaign for a statue of Ipswich Town’s greatest ever player, Kevin Beattie, have now topped £15,000.
Just two weeks after the campaign launched, support has continued to flood in. The latest major donation came after BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Mark Murphy received just over £1,000 in a collection bucket in the Fan Zone at Ipswich Town, prior to the match against Sheffield United.
It’s been a fantastic start for the appeal, launched by the East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star, in conjunction with BBC Radio Suffolk and the TWTD website.
The campaign – called The Beat Goes On – aims to raise £110,000 for a statue in the Portman Road area.
To donate to the appeal, send cheques made payable to ‘The Beat Goes On’ to Kevin Beattie Statue Appeal, EADT, Portman House, 120 Princes Street, Ipswich, IP11RS, or visit the crowdfunding page
