Bury:  “2000 people from all our diverse communities, of all ages, joined together to remember the victims of the #ManchesterArenaAttacks” Tamoor Tariq

Yesterday I was really proud of our town, 2000 people from all our diverse communities, of all ages, joined together to remember the victims of the #ManchesterArenaAttacks at a very moving and emotional Vigil. 
We will in particular remember victims of our town Olivia Campbell, John Atkinson, who have tragically lost their lives. 
The whole town is united and stands with the families in this time of grief & sorrow. We also remember Adam Lawler who is receiving extensive treatment in hospital. The students from Tottington High school have had a testing and challenging few days. 
To our faith leaders, thank you for uniting our community and joining together as one to stand against this barbaric attack. 
Thanks also to Greater Manchester Police for their help and support yesterday and over the last 3 days. Our emergency services have shown incredible commitment and dedication in our darkest hour.
These were Moving and emotional words from Charlotte Campbell, Olivia’s mum ;
‘As a family we are standing strong I ask you all strangers, friends, relatives, stay together, don’t let this beat any of us, don’t let my daughter be a victim.’
When we were faced with death and destruction we responded with Peace and Unity, thank you Bury
