Beauticians at a South Tyneside salon are preparing to hold a ‘massage marathon’ in support of the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust.

Cleadon Beauty on Front Street hopes to give as many massages as possible to customers throughout April to raise money for the charity set up in memory of Chloe Rutherford and Liam Curry.

The South Shields couple tragically died in the Manchester Arena attack in 2017. The trust set up in their name provides grants to young people in the North East to help them achieve their goals in sport or performance.

Co-owners Tracey Lilburn and Beverley Brown, who have run the salon for four years, say apprentices aim to do at least 26 massages during the month.

“We have two apprentices who are at slightly different stages in learning,” Tracey said.

“In our industry, they get to the stage where they’ve learned the skill but have to practice to perfect it. So in a way we decided, ‘why not do something for charity to try to raise money while they learn too?’

“Because they are young themselves and from the South Shields area, we wanted a local charity and we wanted to support the Chloe and Liam Trust which really helps young people to progress and reach their full potential. We so we thought the two things went together.up would be perfect.
