Charity Day at The Railway Inn for The Bradley Lowery Foundation

THE Railway Inn hosted a charity day last Sunday to raise money for a group of friends from Westbury who are walking 327-miles from Bournemouth FC to Sunderland FC in aid of Bradley Lowery.

Bradley, from Hartlepool, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at just 18 months. As a massive Sunderland fan, he touched the hearts of the entire team, especially ex-Sunderland player and England striker, Jermaine Defoe. Bradley died last year, aged just 6,

Westbury men Mark Bosher, John Williams, Andy Baxter, Andy King, Richard Edwards and Billy MacEntaggert alongside three men from Sunderland and Newcastle – Colin Cruddace, Kenny Ashton and Graeme Robinson – are to face a gruelling 327-mile walk from the Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth to Sunderland’s Stadium of Light between the 7th and 16th March in memory of Bradley.

On Sunday 11th February, The Railway Inn hosted an event to raise money for The Bradley Lowery Foundation.

The activities included three dart challenges, speed pool challenge and 3 ball skittle challenges. Then in the evening they hosted charity horse racing.

Sue Ashford, owner of The Railway Inn said, “Julian and I would like to thank all of our customers who came to the event and contributed to this very worthwhile cause. We would also like to wish the walkers the very best of luck.”

The evening was a big success and raised £285 for the foundation. As well as fundraising, The Railway Inn have also provided the walkers with food, energy drinks, energy bars, snacks, tea and coffee for them to have for the duration of the walk.

Mark Bosher, one of the organisers and walkers will be appearing on ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Tuesday 6th March to promote the event and bring awareness to fundraising for the  Bradley Lowery Foundation.
