Gleeson Homes honour Bradley Lowery at new development in Hartlepool

Housebuilder Gleeson Homes has teamed up with Gemma Lowery of the Bradley Lowery Foundation to name the roads on its new development in Blackhall Colliery, Hartlepool.

Hardwicke Place, Gleeson’s new development of 123 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes will compromise of several roads, two of which have been named by Gemma in Bradley’s honour.

The two roads, will be named Bradley Lowery Way and Sunshine Place; sunshine being the nickname that Gemma and her husband Carl gave Bradley, due to his sunny disposition despite the pain and discomfort he was suffering throughout his illness.

An inspirational little boy, Bradley Lowery battled cancer most of his young life before he tragically lost his fight in July 2017. The six-year-old was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of cancer found mainly in babies and young children at the age of just 18 months.

Hardwicke Place is less than a mile from where Bradley lived with his parents. Gleeson were introduced to Gemma Lowery by Graeme Blenkinsopp of Wisemove Land Agents, from whom Gleeson secured the land on which Hardwicke Place will be built.

Sarah Marsden, Divisional Managing Director at Gleeson said: “We are delighted to be commemorating Bradley by naming the roads on Hardwicke Place after him. As the designated charity for all of Gleeson’s North Eastern Division, we will be continually raising money for the Bradley Lowery Foundation throughout our next financial year and beyond with various fundraising initiatives.”

Gemma Lowery, Managing Director of the Bradley Lowery Foundation said: “When I was contacted by Gleeson and they explained they wanted to name a street after Bradley, I was completely overwhelmed. I think it is an incredible gesture, it keeps Bradley’s name and legacy alive for years to come. Gleeson are continuing to support the Bradley Lowery Foundation and I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone involved, I am very grateful.”

Homes at Hardwicke Place will go on sale in Autumn 2021, with the show homes and sales office being launched in December 2021. The first new homeowners at Hardwicke Place will be moving into their new homes in early 2022. And with Gleeson’s pricing model, coupled with the Government Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme, the homes will be affordable, guaranteeing that they will appeal to many first time buyers and young families.
