The Bradley Lowery Foundation will hold the event on October 27 at Blackhall Community Centre - and it's raising money for a fantastic cause in honour of the boy who touched so many hearts with his journey.

Bradley, who was six when he died last July, was a pupil at Blackhall Colliery Primary School. He was suffering from terminal neuroblastoma cancer, but never failed to make the world smile with his unwavering determination and infectious smile.

On the anniversary of his death last month, both the school and the foundation announced the collaborative launch of The Bradley Lowery Legacy Project, which will see a new play area built within the school grounds.

Among its features will be a pirate ship named the HMS Bradley. The play area will be accessible to pupils of all ages, as well as the wider community.

Bradley Lowery lost his fight against neuroblastoma on July 7, 2017.

The project is expected to cost around £600,000 and is set for completion by next summer.

A post on the Bradley Lowery Foundation Facebook page said that the party will feature a disco, games, fancy dress competition, raffle and tombola.

If you would like to attend, tickets can be purchased from the foundation's offices at 554 Middle Street, Blackhall, TS27 4EA. They are for sale on a first come, first served basis.

Tickets for the event cost 3.
