Due to the pandemic, construction on Super Brad’s Pad, a holiday home for poorly children and their families, has been delayed, but the Bradley Lowery Foundation has revealed that work will finally begin in May.

The foundation, which supports children with life threatening, shortening or compromising medical conditions, is asking local builders, electricians, plumbers, plasterers and decorators if they can offer their support, either by to donating their time or materials to help to build the luxury holiday home.

Super Brad’s Pad will be a five-bedroom holiday home in Scarborough and will provide a luxury escape for hundreds of families with children that are suffering with life-changing illnesses.

Gemma Lowery, Bradley’s mum and founder of the foundation, said: “We are so excited to finally begin working on Super Brad’s Pad after a long wait due to the pandemic.

“We are still hoping that local tradespeople will be able to support us delivering this lasting memory to Brad and a lifeline for families to make new and lasting memories together.

“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 are extremely grateful for all the support from the Scarborough community, they made me and my family feel extremely welcome when we visited with Bradley and have continued to support me and the charity. We would like to say thank you for all their generosity, we couldn’t have done it without them!”

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 £3 million for dozens of poorly children across the UK; established a dedicated support line for the families of children with cancer; donated over £200 thousand to researching childhood cancers and campaigned for new drugs to be introduced in the UK.
