South Tyneside Council make donation to the Chloe and Liam trust

together forever donation

1:36pm 22nd February 2018

A special trust set up in tribute to a much loved South Tyneside couple has received a welcome boost. 

South Tyneside Council has made the £300 donation to the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust. 

The Trust was set up last year in memory of young sweethearts Chloe Rutherford and Liam Curry, to help inspire and support children to achieve and reach their potential in sport and performing arts. 

Chloe was a gifted performer and Liam was a talented cricketer. They lost their lives during the attack on the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena last May. 

On behalf of the Council, the Mayor and Mayoress of South Tyneside, Councillor Olive Punchion and Mrs Mary French, handed over the cheque to Chloe’s and Liam’s parents Mark and Lisa Rutherford and Caroline Curry during a presentation at South Shields Town Hall.


The Mayor said:

“We are delighted to make this contribution to the Together Forever Trust and support such a worthwhile cause. They are doing amazing things helping aspiring children and young people to realise their ambitions. 

“We were all touched by Chloe and Liam’s story of love and togetherness. This fund is a lasting legacy to such a wonderful young couple and a way of ensuring that their memories will live on in helping others in their communities to follow their dreams, something they sadly will never get to experience.”

The money has been donated from the Borough’s Community Area Forum grants allocation for 2017/18. 

Speaking on behalf of the two families, Mark said:

“We are very grateful for the donation and would like to thank the Council and wider community for all the support they have shown our families. 

“Chloe and Liam were passionate about sport and performing arts and we know they would be very proud to see contributions such as this helping others do some of the things that they loved to do.”
