A Halloween disco is being held in memory of Lutterworth teenager Hannah Smith who took her own life after being bullied on the internet.
The 14-year-old was found hanged in her Lutterworth home in August after being bullied on the social media website Ask.fm.
The memorial event, suitable for the whole family, is being held at The Wycliffe Rooms in George Street, Lutterworth from 4pm to 8pm next Saturday, October 26.
All profits raised will be going to the Harborough Against Bullying (HAB) charity.
A spokesperson for Hannah Smith’s Safe Haven, which is organising the event, said: “Since Hannah passed away, HAB have supported the family and friends through every step of their journey and we want to give something back.
“The attention generated when Hannah made this tragic decision has seen hundreds of people of all ages reach out to HAB for help and support as they face bullying and other emotional problems.
“We hope that not only will this be a vibrant, colourful and happy event, but will also raise vital funds to help this local non-profit organisation support the growing demand placed on their services.
“None of this would be possible without the support of local businesses and the community. Let’s ensure this is an event Lutterworth can be proud of.”
Tickets cost £2.50, or £1 for the under-16s, and are available from Lutterworth Sound and Vision in Church Street, Lutterworth Movie Zone in Central Avenue and David Robinson Estates in Main Street, Broughton Astley.
Some tickets may be available on the door but this cannot be guaranteed so people are being urged to get tickets in advance.
There will be a fancy dress competition for different age groups, a raffle with some top prizes donated by generous Lutterworth area businesses, face-painting, a magician, lots of other fun activities and there will be a licensed bar available.
