Rossendale Free Press - - News -

AN out­door and camp­ing store is host­ing a char­ity fun day in Hasling­den in mem­ory of a teenager who was trag­i­cally killed in the Manch­ester ter­ror at­tack.

Win­fields is stag­ing the event at its store on Black­burn Road on Satur­day, Au­gust 26 to raise funds for a high school’s mu­sic de­part­ment in hon­our of pupil Olivia Camp­bel­lHardy’s love of mu­sic.

There will be live bands, in­clud­ing the Bou­tiques and The Joe Publix, a scooter and mo­tor­cy­cle rally, raf­fles with prizes from lo­cal busi­nesses and kids fun fair and face paint­ing at the store, as well as ap­pear­ances from TV per­son­al­i­ties and Star Wars stormtroop­ers.

A spokesper­son for the Hazel Mill store said: “All money raised will be do­nated to Olivia’s school, Tot­ting­ton High School, in the hope that they can buy school in­stru­ments for pupils to carry on the love that Olivia had for singing and her pas­sion of mu­sic.”

There is a £5 en­try fee for all scoot­ers and mo­tor­cy­cles with awards go­ing to the best bikes and the fun day runs from 11am un­til 7pm.

Olivia, 15, was among 22 peo­ple who died in the sui­cide bomb­ing at Manch­ester Arena on May 22.
