THE charity set up in the memory of a Barra schoolgirl killed in the Manchester Arena bombing has posted a tribute to mark the three-year anniversary of her tragic death.

Eilidh MacLeod was 14 when she was one of the 22 people killed by a terrorist’s bomb after an Ariana Grande concert in 2017.

The Eilidh MacLeod Memorial Trust today published a tribute to her online, saying she will never be forgotten.

The charity wrote: "A bright light and a spark of fun was extinguished that night, making our worlds darker and poorer as a result.

"The events at Manchester Arena have left a mark on all of our lives.

"We all have happy memories of Eilidh and the part she played in our lives. This is what we will think about at this time."

The founder of the trust, Suzanne White, also issued a statement on behalf of trustees. She wrote: “We established the trust to build a legacy for Eilidh by supporting other young musicians to continue her musical journey. Over the past year – with your amazing support – we have been able to start doing that.

“We are so incredibly proud that, so far, we have been able to provide funding to 19 youth music groups across Scotland and in Manchester. It is all of you lovely, beautiful people that has made that happen with your love, friendship and support.”

She went on: “Our work has only really started and we are so grateful to every single person that has backed us so far. Please don’t stop! We know you will stand by us and that we can rely on you to always be there for us.

“At this time let us not only reflect on Eilidh’s life and the gap she has left, but let us reaffirm our commitment to continuing her legacy in the months and years to come through future generations of young musicians.”
