Bristol Street Motors Hartlepool Ford’s fundraising efforts have helped the Bradley Lowery Foundation purchase a car to help the charity offer help to young cancer sufferers.

The Brenda Road dealership was originally fundraising to help send Bradley Lowery abroad for treatment for his neuroblastoma; an illness that took Bradley’s life last year.

It has continued to support the foundation with its most recent push to get the Foundation a new car to meet the service users it supports.

The Foundation works to support children who are suffering from rare and life-threatening illnesses, and their families, using money raised by members of the public during and after Bradley’s illness.

Bristol Street Motors Ford Hartlepool’s general manager, Christopher Stewart, said: “I hope the car will be put to good use as Bradley’s Foundation continues with its excellent work helping youngsters to battle their illnesses.

"Colleagues at the dealership are looking forward to hosting fundraising activities to help the Foundation.”

Bradley’s mum, Gemma Lowery, said: “We are very grateful to Bristol Street Motors for its continued support. The car will be incredibly useful as the Foundation’s work to help children suffering from serious illnesses takes us all over the country.

"The dealership’s fund and awareness raising is also very helpful. Any and all support we receive is put towards helping sick youngsters and their families.”
