Birthday gift 'from Maddie' for twins The Sun

By ANTONELLA LAZZERI
Published: Today (01 February 2010)

MADDIE McCann's sister and brother celebrated their fifth birthday with a party yesterday and a present from their missing sibling.

Parents Kate and Gerry held the special bash for twins Sean and Amelie.

They always buy the pair a gift from their missing sister for Christmas and birthdays.

The twins are a year older than Maddie was when she vanished from a holiday apartment in Portugal on May 3 2007.

A source close to the McCanns said the party at their home in Rothley, Leics, was "poignant" but Kate and Gerry, both 41, did everything they could to make it a happy day.

The source said: "Milestones like this are hard for them. Kate and Gerry are determined to give the twins as normal an upbringing as possible."

Exclusive by Tom Pettifor 31/01/2010

Donations to the Find Madeleine McCann fund fell from almost £2million to £650,000 in just one year, it was revealed yesterday.

Only cash received in libel payouts to friends of Gerry and Kate McCann – dubbed the Tapas Seven – enabled the search for their daughter to go on, latest accounts show.

Around £260 an hour flooded into the Fund as a wave of public sympathy swept the UK after Maddie’s abduction in Praia da Luz in the Algarve in May, 2007,

It had £1.4million in bank donations alone in the first ten months of the search.

But contributions fell away after the McCanns became one-time suspects. And the Fund’s income dropped to £629,181 in the year up to 31 March 2009 – while spending rose from £815,113 to more than £1million.

Outgoings covered investigators, publicity and the pair’s legal fight against Portuguese policeman Goncalo Amaral.

Kate and Gerry, both 41, have been granted a temporary injunction on his book claiming Maddie, three, died the day she went missing.

The couple’s friends were paid £375,000 in October 2008 after false newspaper allegations about them.

Fund chairman, Gerry’s brother John, said: “Rather than accepting libel damages, the friends requested a donation was made to the fund. This has enabled us to continue our search for Madeleine.”

It's stories like this that hit home the hardest. Makes you realise how difficult it must be, but here's hoping next birthday will be different.
