A FUNDRAISING campaign has been launched to build a permanent memorial to Eilidh MacLeod on the Isle of Barra.
Eilidh was 14 when she was tragically killed in the Manchester Arena attack on May 22 of last year.
She was one of 22 people killed in the suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert.
On the page, set up by family member Suzanne White, the fundraising team write: “It is heart-breaking to realise that you will never get to see her grow into the wonderful young lady she was becoming but like everyone whose life she ever touched we were blessed & honoured to have really known her.
“We will remember her for many things but particularly her huge capacity to help others which makes the world a far lonelier place without her in it. It is only fitting that she have a beautiful memorial to reflect the beautiful girl she was both inside and out.”
Part of the funds will also go to the Sgoil Lionacleit Pipe Band, which Eilidh was a keen member of.
Some of Eilidh’s close family and friends will take part in the Great Manchester Run to raise funds and there’ll also be a raffle with top prizes.
