Bradley Lowery Foundation: Praise for charity as plans emerge for holiday home in Scarborough
Friends and supporters of a charity set up in honour of brave Bradley Lowery have praised plans to create a holiday home for sick children and their families.
The Bradley Lowery Foundation, launched in the wake of the six-year-old's death in 2017, could be set to receive a parcel of land in Scarborough to allow the home to be built.
Bradley lost his fight to neuroblastoma cancer in July last year. His bravery and determination inspired thousands across the world.
One of the last holidays the Lowery family had together was in Scarborough - and the Foundation hopes to create somewhere that families facing similar challenges to their own can make special memories.
Scarborough Council's Cabinet is set to meet next week to discuss granting the long lease of land, which is to the south of Scalby Manor, to the Foundation at "nil value".
A report, which will go before councillors next week, said: "The Foundation contacted the council to locate an area of land that could be leased to build a state of the art holiday home for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families."
Dozens of people have now offered their support to the plans - and also to the Lowery family for keeping other people at the heart of their work, despite the tragedy of losing Bradley so young.
