Money raised at the event, which is taking place in October, will go towards supporting families in creating life-long memories at the home.

Scarborough holds a special place in the heart of Bradley’s family, as it was one of the last places they went on holiday together with the little boy.

Bradley, who was six when he died, fought terminal neuroblastoma cancer and lost his life in July 2017.

Director Phil Jewitt said: “As a company we wanted to raise much needed funds for this home, to enable sick children, similar to Bradley, to create amazing memories and get some respite away from ongoing hospital visits.

Planning permission has already been granted to create a holiday home in Bradley's name.

“This is why we are hosting a fun night of murder mystery and donating all proceeds to this cause.”

Bradley’s mum Gemma, who is also CEO of the Foundation set up in her son’s name, said she wanted to give back to other families after the precious time she spent in Scarborough.

Murder and the Grand Duchess is on at the Bonded Warehouse, Sunderland, on Sunday, October 27.

There will also be an auction and a raffle, and sponsorship is being sought from local firms, with several options available.

Lynn Murphy, head of communications and fundraising at the Bradley Lowery Foundation, said: “This event is going to be amazing, we can’t thank Phil enough for his support.

“We met Phil a couple of weeks ago, when he attended a local bucket collection for the foundation. He is such a lovely man.

“Tickets are selling fast, so you need to be quick if you want to attend.”
