Town remembers Teenage Sweethearts

The town unites to remember Chloe and Liam as it's now 5 years since that awful moment happened at The Manchester Areana. Chloe & Liam Together Forever Trust has already touched hundreds of young lives in the North East in the five years since the horror of the Manchester attack.

Teenage sweethearts Chloe Rutherford, 17, and Liam Curry, 19, were among the 22 people killed in the Manchester bombing atrocity on May 22, 2017. The couple, who'd dreamed of getting married one day, were 'inseparable' in life - and now their names are forever joined in a charity which helps local young people follow their dreams.

People can donate to the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust or find out how to apply for the trust's help at: https://www.facebook.com/ChloeAndLiamTogetherForever
