Bristol Street Motors Hartlepool Ford is helping the Bradley Lowery Foundation to continue to fund live-saving medical treatment for children suffering from serious illness.

The Brenda Road dealership is supporting the Foundation, which was originally set up to raise funds to send Bradley Lowery abroad for treatment for his neuroblastoma, with a new car to meet the youngsters it is supporting.

It is also holding a number of fundraising events to raise money to support the Foundation’s work fighting serious illnesses affecting young children, including neuroblastoma; an illness which took Bradley’s life last year.

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.

Christopher Stewart, general manager at Bristol Street Motors Ford Hartlepool, said: “We are proud to be able to support the Bradley Lowery Foundation and help it to reach more youngsters with illnesses.

“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.”
