Plea for Allison's girls

ALLISON Baden-Clay's family is raising money to send her daughters to Ipswich Girl's Grammar School where Allison was educated.

Allison's family has thrown its arms around her daughters Hannah, Sarah and Ella as her murder remains a mystery.

Her Ipswich cousin Leah Moore said the family had united to raise money for the girls.

"Allison's dream was to send the girls to Ipswich Girl's Grammar School so that's our aim, to ensure they do," Ms Moore said.

"She was vice-head girl there and she just loved the school and wanted to give them the opportunities she got.

"It's going to be a rough road ahead for them but we're just trying to make it a little bit easier, if there's anything we can do.

"We don't know what's coming with the case or anything so it's just to ensure they have the best life possible really.

"It's doing it for Allison. We're doing anything we can."

She has taken time off work to "kind of help out where needed".

"It's been a bit crazy. We're kind of helpless at the moment so doing anything is worth it. Something tangible," she said.

"It's been a bit up and down but we're just hoping for the best, hoping we have an outcome and we find out what happened.

"We've got together as family and that's how we're getting through it. We're just trying to be strong.

"Allison was there for other people so we want to be there for her and do what we can for her girls because I know that would be her number one priority; making sure they're okay."

Allison was found dead in Kholo Creek, about 10km from her Brookfield home, on April 30 - 11 days after she went missing.

Donations to the trust fund can be made through the NAB to BSB: 084 737, account: 133 196 502 or to badenclay.appeal@gmail.com.
