I’m sure most of us are aware of the outpouring of support for Bradley Lowery who passed away last week after months of fighting neuroblastoma, a rare form of debilitating cancer.
Some parents and children have asked whether our school is planning to support the ‘cancer has no colours’ campaign on Friday, the day of Bradley’s funeral.
Bradley was a huge fan of Sunderland football team and his illness brought together fans of football clubs across the country, hence the campaign tag #cancerhasnocolours.
We are inviting any child or adult in our school on Friday to wear a football shirt, of any team, and donate £1.00 towards the Bradley Lowery Foundation. The football top will be worn instead of the school polo and sweat shirt but with the rest of our school uniform. This isn’t a ‘dress down’ day, it’s simply a show of support by wearing a football top with our school uniform.
All £1.00 donations will be given directly to the Bradley Lowery Foundation. Schools and businesses across the North East are supporting the #cancerhasnocolours campaign in Bradley’s memory.
If a child does not want to wear a football shirt then that’s no problem at all, they just come to school on Friday in their uniform as usual.
