Bradley Lowery Foundation - Supporting Fundraising Campaigns

As of today we are officially celebrating being part of the Bradley Lowery Foundation! *

Bradley Lowery was a young boy with a rare brain tumour called neuroblastoma. He tragically lost his battle in the summer of 2017 aged just 6 years old. The foundation was set up in Bradley’s memory to help other children by raising funds for medical treatment and equipment not available in the UK.

For us this is monumental as it means we are now part of a registered charity and can accept donations with gift aid if you are a tax paying individual. It also means that businesses and larger companies that require a charity number can now make donations as well!

One of the harder announcements is that after a lot of advice from the foundation and parents of other children seeking treatment in Monterrey, we are having to increase our target to £700,000. This is a massive increase, over double that of our original baseline target. We did not come to this decision lightly, we were first given the advice over a week ago and completely dismissed it thinking it was an unrealistic target.

However, some of the families here have exhausted their funds and need to rethink fundraising. We don’t want to be put in that position after all of your generosity and hard work. We need to be able to give Edie the best chance we can.

£300,000.00 was frightening, but we’re nearly at a third after such a short time. If £700,000.00 is what it takes, then we don’t stop until we get it.

Grandad Chris after we told him how scared we were.

Our hearts shattered all over again, it feels like one step forward and three steps back, but this is how we felt when we were told £300,000, and thanks to every single one of you, we’ve managed to smash a third of that in a matter of weeks, so we know that with all of you in our corner and the huge effort each and every one of you are making, that we can do it.

We have so much faith in the love and support from you all, you truly are fighting alongside us.

Please keep fighting, we need you all now more than ever!
All our love,
Ashleigh & Steve

Fox46 Charlotte News – The Spider-Ede Appeal on US Television

On the 6th of January we reported how an amazing group of people from Charlotte, North Carolina were holding a donation run in aid of the Spider-Ede Appeal. This fantastic gesture, taking place thousands of miles away from where Edie & her family live, was made possible by the lovely people at Sycamore Brewing. We later learned that Sarah Brigham, co-owner of the brewery, was interviewed on air, prior to the race starting, by Charlotte, NC’s local Fox news channel. The interview was, in our opinions, brilliant. It highlighted so much about Edie and her illness, explaining what DIPG is, and gave a lot of exposure to the appeal including prominently displaying our crowd funding page at chuffed.org/project/the-spider-ede-appeal.

Not only are we extremely grateful to Sarah Brigham, Sycamore Brewing and the people of Charlotte, North Carolina for all that they have done for us, but also to Fox46 Charlotte for the tremendous exposure that they have given to our cause within their community.

You can view the interview online at: GETTING RESULTS: Charity Run for Edie.

Edie is a sweet three-year-old girl who was recently diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) – a rare brain tumor that occurs in children. We are raising funds for The Spider-Ede Appeal – DIPG Awareness to get Edie the treatment she needs.

This is a donation run. $5 minimum donation – A $10 donation gets you a free beer or cider post run. Free Hot Chocolate!
