Greater Anglia staff and customers showed their support for Bradley Lowery and his family on Friday, raising £300 for the Bradley Lowery Foundation, to help continue the fight against cancer.

Greater Anglia staff from across the network swapped their usual uniforms for football shirts to pay tribute to six year old Bradley who sadly lost his fight against the terminal childhood cancer, neuroblastoma, on 7 July.

Together with donations from Greater Anglia customers, staff raised more than £300 which will be donated to the Bradley Lowery Foundation.

Organiser, Rachel Harris, who works at Greater Anglia’s Colchester station said: “Bradley’s family wanted the nation to remember him and unite against cancer so, as a team, we really wanted to show our support and raise some money to help at the same time. Thank you to everyone who took part and donated, we’re delighted to have raised so much in one day.”

Michelle Smart, Greater Anglia’s HR director said: "This was a great idea from colleagues, which we were delighted to support. We're thrilled that it went down well with colleagues and customers alike - and the money raised across the country will help other sick children and their families."
