Colleagues Fundraise £6,400 for Bradley Lowery Foundation

August 01, 2017


Colleagues from across A.F. Blakemore’s trading area have donned their favourite football shirts in aid of a ‘Cancer Has No Colours’ fundraiser.

On July 14th, staff from the company’s Retail, 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 ‘Cancer Has No Colours’ fundraiser coincided with six-year-old Bradley Lowery’s funeral, following his battle with neuroblastoma.

Staff are estimated to have raised over £6,400. This includes 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.”
