Bradley's Scarborough Holiday Home Needs a Name

Bradley's Scarborough Holiday Home Needs a Name

Published by Matthew Pells at 2:32pm 26th September 2019.

The Bradley Lowery Foundation is looking for a name and slogan for its holiday home in Scarborough.

The holiday home, which received planning consent earlier this year, will be a purpose-built, recreation facility for poorly children and their families. The foundation is inviting suggestions from the public to help them think of a name and accompanying tagline for the eco-friendly, five-bedroom property.

Gemma Lowery, founder and chief executive of the Bradley Lowery Foundation, said:

“Brad loved Scarborough. We were so lucky that when he was with us, we were able to make lots of memories together and now we want to make sure other families, in similar situations to us, can too.”

Since it was founded, the Bradley Lowery Foundation has raised more than £3million for dozens of poorly children; established a dedicated support line for the families of children with cancer; donated over £200K to researching childhood cancers and campaigned for new drugs to be introduced in the UK. 

Gemma continued,

“We’ve been going round in circles trying to think of a name for the holiday home in Scarborough, so now we’re asking everybody to give us a helping hand. We’re also looking for businesses to help us with the development of the property – so please get in touch if you have any suggestions or you can contribute in any way to the development.”

The public are being asked to send suggestions to contact@bradleyloweryfoundation.com by 4 October. 

Bradley Lowery Holiday House

The Bradley Lowery Foundation was established in August 2017 after Bradley Lowery lost his fight to Neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer.

In 2013 his mum, Gemma, started a fundraising campaign to raise funds to get Bradley treatment in the USA, which was not available in the UK.

The campaign was very successful and with the support off thousands of people, raised over £1.3m, as well as vital awareness for neuroblastoma and childhood cancer in general. The donations provided the funding base for the charity.  

The Bradley Lowery Foundation now aims to support families who are fundraising for treatment or equipment, which is not readily available or covered by the NHS. This includes all illnesses and conditions.

The foundation also: supports research into neuroblastoma and childhood cancers; is developing plans to support a £600,000 holiday home in Scarborough; runs a support line for the families of children with cancer in the North East.
