Olivia Rae, 17, died after catching Swine Flu in 2011, now her Dad wants to help other talented youngsters

Olivia was rushed to hospital over the Christmas, New Year period of 2010/2011 and caught a secondary bacterial infection which caused a severe sepsis, claiming her life.

Since then The Olivia Rae Foundation has been set up, to help other young people or arts groups from the Wirral, here dad Ken Bennet has been telling Heart that he wants her to be remembered: "All of their dreams and plans are just gone, and I'm hoping this is some kind of replacement for Liv so that, through her name and through her foundation, she can still have an impact on the world around her"

Olivia went to The Wallasey School and took part in the Sky television programme Grease: The High School Musical, alongside Michael Nelson.  Michael from Moreton, is the first recipient of a grant from the the Olivia Rae Foundation to help fund him through drama school.
