Colleagues Fundraise for Bradley Lowery Foundation

August 07, 2017

Colleagues from across Blakemore Retail have donned their favourite football shirts in aid of ‘Cancer Has No Colours’. 

On July 14th, staff from 136 Blakemore Retail SPAR stores, along with A.F. Blakemore’s Wholesale and Technical Services divisions, wore their favourite brightly-coloured football shirts and clothing to fundraise for the Bradley Lowery Foundation, which has been established to help sick children.

The fundraiser coincided with six-year-old Bradley Lowery’s funeral, following his battle with Neuroblastoma.

Staff raised over £6,400, including match-fund grants from A.F. Blakemore’s charitable trust, the Blakemore Foundation.

Community Affairs Officer Kate Senter said: “The story behind the Bradley Lowery Foundation touched the hearts of many, including our staff.

“As a company we would like to congratulate all staff for making this fundraiser a huge success and honouring such a courageous young boy.

“Thank you to all staff and customers for their generosity, digging deep for such a worthy good cause.”
