FAMILY and friends of a Wirral teenager who was killed in a car crash are calling on the public to help them mark the second anniversary of her death.

Charlotte Churchill, from Wallasey, died in April 2011 when the car in which she was passenger hit a tree.

But the 19-year-old's legacy lived on through charity Charlotte’s Brightside CLC which her mum, Angie, set up for local young people following a massive fundraising drive.

The youth club, which is in Molyneux Drive, New Brighton, officially launched in February offering dance classes, a recording studio and somewhere for youngsters to hang out.

And now Angie is planning the next string of events to celebrate her daughter’s short life and raise more cash for Brightside.

A family fun day will be held on Good Friday at The Clarence pub, Albion Street, New Brighton with children’s favourites Mickey and Minnie Mouse stopping in for a visit.

And 'Charlotte's Day' will see the nursery nurse’s family and friends come together at The Boot pub in Wallasey on April 9 to mark two years since her death.

Angie said: "It doesn't feel like two years at all since Charlotte left us and it definitely doesn't get any easier.

"If anything, it gets worse because it becomes more real and a permanent part of life that she isn't here.

"My life will never go back to normal but Brightside has kept me going and I know that if I didn’t have that then I would probably be in a very bad place now.

"Charlotte would be thrilled that all of this is in her name and I think that if her life had amounted to nothing after it ended then it would have been such a waste.

"The centre is going from strength to strength and we have got lots of exciting things coming up like rap lessons and a showcase for the kids to show off what they’re learned at Brightside in the summer."

The family fun day will take place on Friday, March 29 from 12pm-4pm. Entry is £1.50 for children, including a free hot dog, and £1 for adults.
