Harry Shillito’s story

Harry Shillito has returned to the Manchester Arena for the first time since the terror attack and raised money for the victims in the process.

The 21-year-old carried out a 50-mile sponsored cycle from his home in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, to the Arena, raising more than £1,000 to be split between the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund and the fund for a memorial.

Harry said: “On the 22nd of May 2017 I was finally getting to see one of my favourite artists after waiting months. Little did anyone know what was about to happen that night. The scenes from that event still affect me every day.

“Returning to the scene was something I never thought I could do, but I decided to help out the charity by raising money as I want to try and help all those effected in the attack in any way possible.”

Thanks to Harry for his very brave effort and to all who sponsored him.

His fundraising page is still open.
