Chloe, 17, an apprentice at Westoe Travel in South Shields, died alongside her boyfriend in the bombing outside Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande concert in May.
The couple’s families have now set up the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust in their memory to help inspire others to “follow their dreams and achieve their goals”.
The trust will help provide funding and grants to pay for auditions, exams, coaching qualifications and travel expenses for activities that the couple enjoyed, such as cricket and music.
Graeme Brett, who was Chloe’s boss at Westoe Travel, will be one of the trustees of the new charity, which will also use the agency as its contact address.
“This is an amazing project by both families and they are so committed to giving other young people the chance to achieve the ambitions that unfortunately Chloe and Liam did not get the chance to realise,” said Brett.
“There has been massive support for the trust since its launch with 3,000 wristbands sold, and events being organised including a golf day, concerts, raffles, Boxing Day dip in the North Sea and various events.
“Schools have held non-uniform days and individuals have donated to the trust.”
