‘I thought that I should use my music to help them as much as I can.’
St Helen’s Square
Sat Jun 17 @ 9am-5pm
Those are the words of 17-year-old York musician Kitty VR, who has organised a fundraising day for the two children of Angelika and Marcin Klis who were killed in the Manchester bombing.
Marcin, a taxi driver, and Angelika had gone to Manchester Arena at the end of the Ariana Grande concert to pick up their daughters – York College student Alex and her 12-year-old sister.
They lost their lives when the suicide bomber detonated his explosives.
Now Kitty VR and a band of similarly talented musicians are to spend a day busking to raise money for the daughters.
We asked Kitty how this had come about.
‘I can relate to both the girls massively’
