Six-year-old Bradley won the nation’s hearts and formed a close personal bond with England international forward Jermain Defoe before losing his battle with neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer, on July 7.

Friends of Peartree Spring Primary School in Shephall Green responded by organising a non-uniform day on the theme ‘cancer has no colours’ – the idea being that no matter what colour your team wears, we all stand together.

A total of £535.82 was collected for the Bradley Lowery Foundation, as members of staff joined the children in wearing football kit.

PTA spokeswoman Charlotte Nash told the Comet: “This was an event inspired by the story of Bradley, that captured the nation’s hearts.
