Following the confirmation that one of our young trustees, Aya Hachem, was tragically shot and killed in Blackburn on Sunday. The Children’s Society Chief Executive, Mark Russell, said:

“We are deeply saddened to learn of the death of one of our young trustees, Aya Hachem. She was a truly remarkable young woman, and an inspiring voice for children and young people. Our thoughts are with her family at this awful time.”

 This is the only statement we are making at this sad time.
