13 things you can donate to the Bradley Lowery Foundation shoebox appeal

The Bradley Lowery Foundation has pledged to its bit to help the homeless in the run-up to the festive season with a brand new shoebox campaign.

Set up by Bradley's family and friends in the wake of his death in 2017, the Foundation works to raise awareness and funds for children who need support with a range of different challenges.

Bradley, who was six when he died, fought terminal neuroblastoma cancer for a number of years. Fundraisers around the world donated money to his campaign.
