Bradley Lowery gets 11,000 Christmas cards in cancer appeal

A five-year-old boy with terminal cancer has been sent more than 11,000 Christmas cards from well-wishers.

Bradley Lowery, from Blackhall Colliery, near Hartlepool, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2013.

More than £700,000 was raised for him to have antibody treatment in New York, with Everton pledging £200,000 after he was a mascot at a Sunderland match.

The Christmas card campaign was started by an Everton fan, with cards being sent from as far as Australia.
