Bradley’s target reached after £200,000 Everton donation

Little Bradley Lowery’s £700,000 target was reached last night following his appearance at last night’s Sunderland-Everton match.

As well as being made mascot at the Sunderland game tonight, Everton donated an incredible £200,000 towards the five-year-old’s cancer treatment.

In a Twitter post, the club said: “Everton Football Club has pledged a donation of £200,000 to support Bradley Lowery in his brave battle.

“We wish Bradley every success and he has the love and support of every Evertonian.

“The club will also be inviting Bradley and his family to the return game at Goodison Park and the players’ signed shirts from tonight’s game will be auctioned off to support the fund.”

This afternoon, Bradley’s mam Gemma took to the fund’s Facebook page and said: “My head is in a spin today – the amount of support is incredible, thank you so much.

“Bradley used every last bit of energy taking himself out into that field last night – what a proud moment it was for us.

“Thank you so much for your support – please keep donating for the extra cost as the £700,000 only covers the antibody and nothing else.”
