PLAN TO CREATE EDUCATION FUND IN MEMORY OF BETTY SHANKS

Posted by Jack Sim on 30 September 2012

FUND TO BE CREATED IN VICTIMS NAME

As the month of September closes, the 60th anniversary of the Wilston Murder also ends.

Betty Shanks was a real person, a beautiful soul who was cut down in her prime, She was not just a name associated with a crime. Betty was studying, caring for her parents and working full time - unusual for time. In many ways Betty was a very typical woman of the 21st century.

Betty fought for her life on the night she was to die. She tried to defend herself from the furious attack.  It has always seemed sad to me that her fight to live, and better herself and those around her, has become lost in the six decades of media coverage of her death.

To honour Betty's memory, I would like to announce that a fund is to be created to educate young students and help them reach university.

I hope to be able to announce in greater detail the aims and objectives over the next few months.
