Sisters from Flimby will hold a charity night next Friday in memory of Chloe Walker, who died in the 2010 Keswick School bus crash.
Kayleigh McCrickerd, 24, of Andersons Court, and Leona McFarland, 20, of Eagle Ghyll Farm, will host the fund-raiser at Workington Royal British Legion, St John’s Court, from 7pm.
Chloe, of Frizington, died on her 16th birthday when the school bus was in collision with a car on the A66 near Keswick.
Fellow pupil Kieran Goulding, 15, of Whitehaven, also died.
Chloe would have been 20 this year.
The event will raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance and MPS, a society which supports people with mucopolysaccharide, which causes physical disability and degenerative mental deterioration.
Chloe’s older brother Jordan had the condition.
Kayleigh said: “We try to hold an event every year. When you leave school you lose touch with a lot of people so it is nice to do something like this to bring people back together.
“It is a good thing for Chloe’s family to come along to because it shows how popular she was and that everyone is still thinking about her.”
There will be a raffle, auction, hypnotist, karaoke and disco. The sisters have already received a £100 bid on a Manchester United Football Club shirt signed by Wayne Rooney.
Tickets are £5 on the door.
