Chloe Walker, of Frizington, died on her 16th birthday along with Whitehaven boy Kieran Goulding, 15, when their school bus was in collision with a car on the A66.

The Keswick School pupil would have been 19 today.

Two sisters from Flimby, Kayleigh and Leona McFarland, and friend Gina Ireland, of Moresby, are behind tonight’s fund raiser at the Royal British Legion club.

They hope to collect enough money for a memorial bench to go in a Keswick park.

Leona and Gina raised £1,200 from a 10,000ft tandem dive in November.

The cash is being split between the Great North Air Ambulance, MPS – a charity that supports people with the degenerative condition mucopolysaccharide – and the bench appeal.

Tonight’s event starts at 7pm and features a disco, karaoke, pie-and-pea supper, raffle and auction.

Tickets cost £5 from Envy Nails and Beauty in Cockermouth or Hair Lounge in Workington.
