The event Facebook page says:

We will be coming together to show our support and respect for the victims and their families with a moment of silence, poems, and a balloon release for each of the people taken so sadly and too soon.

We are also raising money with all proceeds going to the victims and their families in their time of need; we are in need of raffle prizes and stall holders.

Floral tributes and balloons are still being left in St Ann’s Square in Manchester city centre, a place where people have been visiting to reflect, remember and pay their respects since the attack took place


On Sunday, a benefit concert is also taking place at Old Trafford Cricket Ground with proceeds going to the victims and their families.

One Love Manchester will feature Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Take That, Little Mix, Robbie Williams, Pharrell Williams, Black Eyed Peas and Niall Horan.

Twenty-four pupils from Parrs Wood High School’s Harmony Choir, some who were at the arena on the night of the attack, have been invited to join Ariana on stage after they recorded a cover of her song My Everything in tribute to the victims.

One Love Manchester is being aired on BBC One from 6pm.
