City fans cycle in aid of Bradley Lowery Foundation

A group of City fans have raised more than £5,700 with a Bristol-to-Sunderland cycle ride in aid of the Bradley Lowery Foundation.

Sunderland fan Bradley was six-years-old when he lost his battle to cancer last July.

The story of his fight against Neuroblastoma travelled around the globe and gripped the football world.

And a group of City fans continue to play their part for the Bradley Lowery Foundation, which has been set up to help and support campaigns to fund medical cancer treatment and equipment not currently available through the NHS.

Nick Duff, Lee Rackham, Dean Webb, Craig Porter and Wayne Lloyd all made the 320-mile bike ride from Ashton Gate to the Stadium of Light, ahead of the October clash between City and Sunderland in October 2017.

Their fundraising efforts contributed a fantastic £5,750 for the Bradley Lowery Foundation.

Speaking ahead of the reverse Sky Bet Championship fixture at the Gate on Saturday (February 10th 3pm kick-off), Nick said: "It went really well. There were some difficult times with punctures but we got through it and it went well in the end.

"We were all touched by what happened at the time and so we really wanted to do something to help the great cause.

"All of us have children so it touched all of us. You do not know when something like this will happen to you or your family.

"The foundation is brilliant as it is working to help people will various types of cancers, not just Neuroblastoma."
