Plans have been unveiled to remember Westoe Travel apprentice Chloe Rutherford and her boyfriend Liam Curry on the second anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing in which they were killed.

A Pink and Blue Day will be held in South Shields with schools and businesses encouraging staff and pupils to wear pink and blue on May 22 and to organise activities to raise money for the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust.

The trust, established by the families of Chloe and Liam to support other young people achieve their ambitions in sport and performance, has raised more than £150,000.

More then 350 schools and firms have so far committed to taking part in the activity. A similar event last year raised £42,000.

Graeme Brett, of Westoe Travel – one of the Trustees of The Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust – said: “There is still much love for Chloe and Liam and their families and the support for events for the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust is amazing.

“The Trust is doing a fantastic role in ensuring that there is a lasting legacy for Chloe and Liam and their parents are so inspirational in making the Trust so successful.”

Other events in the next few weeks include a sponsored walk – 22 miles for 22 Lives – a golf day, football match and a ball at the Hilton in Gateshead.

Chloe and aspiring cricketer Liam were among more than 20 people killed in the terrorist attack at the Ariana Grande concert.
