A CHARITY is uniting with a laboratory to launch a new hand sanitiser to raise funds for its latest project.

The Bradley Lowery Foundation partnered with Zidac Laboratories to create the new hand sanitiser which will support the charity’s recent project, Super Brad’s Pad.

Local businesses are being asked to sell the product on the charity’s behalf and it will also be available to purchase directly from the Bradley Lowery Foundation website.

The bottles have been designed to display the charity’s logo, and the sanitiser contains aloe vera to stop sensitive skin from drying out.

It will provide the foundation with at least 52p profit per unit sold.

Funds raised from selling the product will go towards the charity’s five-bedroom holiday home – Super Brad’s Pad – in Scarborough, which will provide luxury breaks for families from across the region who have children with life-threatening, shortening or compromising medical conditions.

When completed, the home will support up to 100 families each year.

Gemma Lowery, Bradley’s mum and founder of the foundation, said: “We’ve come a long way with our plans for the holiday home, but we still have a long way to go and lots of funds to raise.

“Covid has been tough on everyone, particularly charities, so we wanted to look at something that would help in the current situation – keeping people’s hands clean – and also give the opportunity to donate to a good cause, even if people can only afford a small amount.

“We hope that businesses and members of the public will get behind the Bradley Lowery Foundation and, next time they need a hand sanitiser, choose one that is helping to support very poorly children and their families.”

The Bradley Lowery Foundation was established in memory of Bradley Lowery, who passed away following a fight with Neuroblastoma in 2017.

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