THE TRAGEDY of the arena bombing affected many lives but one family is determined some good should come from it.

A music and arts charity was set up in memory of 15-year-old Olivia Campbell-Hardy by family members who wanted her dream of teaching music to live on.

Liv's Trust was set up by family members including her 'Papa' Steve Goodman and dad Andrew Hardy.

The trust is based in Bury where Olivia lived but had help to set up a special event in Bolton thanks to Tony Walsh, who is a distant relative of Olivia's.

Mr Walsh recently moved back to Bolton from Scotland and said he had begun to see more of Olivia but "not enough" before she was killed after attending the Ariana Grande concert in May.

Mr Walsh is a singer-songwriter and was putting together a gig at Bolton Little Theatre when duo SheedyFrost found out about the trust.

Mr Walsh said: "They have played in the theatre before and when I mentioned the trust they said 'Can we do it for the trust?' and they asked me to play and I asked others to play with me."

The event has become "Sheedyfrost and Guests", featuring Vincent Sheedy and Paul Frost's acoustic sounds along with performances from Helen Hall and Steven Robinson.

Mr Walsh said: "There's going to be a wide range of acoustic music from old-style Dylan to Ed Sheeran. Sheedyfrost can be amazingly funny, not just in the songs they write but in the way they can put them across as well.

"It should be a fun evening but with an underlying seriousness as well."

The special event is being held at Bolton Little Theatre, Hanover Street to raise money for Liv's Trust, which helps under 25s in Greater Manchester get into music and dance in a variety of ways.

The Sheedyfrost and Guests event is being held on Saturday. Doors open at 7pm and tickets can be bought online through Eventbrite or from the theatre directly for £7.50.
