WORK on a holiday home funded by The Bradley Lowery Foundation will soon start after being paused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The five-bedroom holiday home in Scarborough, named ‘Super Brad’s Pad,’ will provide luxury breaks for families across the region who have children with terminal or compromising medical conditions.

Gemma Lowery, Bradley’s mum and founder of the foundation, said that the generosity of local builders and contractors, as well as donations, may still have an important role to play.

Reductions in donations and construction delays have meant the foundation is still looking to raise funding to ensure the home is completed as planned.

She said: “Although the nation has been in lockdown for the past few months, social isolation is a day-to-day reality for many families with poorly children.

“The home will be a permanent legacy to Bradley; Scarborough was his favourite place to visit and it is fitting that the location will soon have a home that can help provide precious memories to hundreds of families.

“We decided to build the holiday home as a way to provide respite care and support to families that are going through or have gone through similar experiences to ours.

“Although we are currently in a position where we are able to continue with the project, it is important that we continue to raise funds to ensure that the holiday home fulfils the foundation’s vision for the accommodation.”

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

Bradley's brave battle with cancer captured hearts around the world before he sadly died in 2017 aged six.
