Liam Allen-Curry

We are devastated to learn 19-year-old Liam Allen-Curry and his girlfriend, Chloe Rutherford, are among the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing.

Liam was an outstanding young man and a great credit to his family.

At 14, he began fundraising for us after his Granddad, Jack Allen, was diagnosed with cancer and he proudly completed a Coast to Coast cycle ride.

Cruelly, his Dad, Andrew Curry, was also diagnosed with cancer and died in March this year. Liam continued fundraising during his Dad’s illness and undertook a 260 mile sponsored cycle ride from Calais to Paris and a Great North Run to help raise funds for us.

No words can adequately convey feelings at a time like this. Our thoughts are with Liam’s loved ones and all the victims’ families and friends.
