THE mum of a 10-year-old schoolboy could burst with pride after her son vowed to help the families of the 22 people killed in the Manchester terror attack.

Gemma-Louise Dunne, of Greenwood Crescent, Orford, was overcome with emotion when her son Jayden Dunne decided to make loom band key chains and bracelets.

The St Bridget's Catholic Primary School pupil, who raised almost £130 after selling his stock, was determined to help after an explosive device was detonated at the Manchester Arena at an Ariana Grande concert on May 22. 

Gemma said: "He was told about what had happened at school.

"I'm originally from Manchester and my mum works for Greater Manchester Police.

"He lost the man who brought him up a few years back and he told me all the victims would be in heaven with him."

It has been a difficult few years for Gemma and her family following the sudden death of her partner Michael Coray.

The former William Beamont High School pupil was just 25 years old when he died in April 2014 following a crash on Poplars Avenue.

Michael, also known by the surname Murray, died from injuries sustained in a motorbike accident, 12 hours before son Kylan Zane Michael Coray was born at Warrington Hospital. 

But it is clear that Michael will never be forgotten with year five pupil Jayden making the loom band creations in his memory.

She said: "As his mum I couldn't be more proud of Jayden.

"He was determined to raise money for such a heartbreaking cause – I didn't expect him to raise so much but he put himself out there and raised a fantastic amount."
