Football Shirt Friday returns for its eighth year in aid of the Bobby Moore Fund, for Cancer Research UK, on Friday 20th November.
Former West Ham United and England defender Bobby Moore was just 51 years old when he died. Shortly after his death in 1993, Bobby’s widow Stephanie Moore MBE set up the Bobby Moore Fund as a restricted fund of Cancer Research UK to raise money for pioneering bowel cancer research.
Since Bobby’s death, they have raised over £27 million and mortality rates for bowel cancer have fallen by more than 30%. But sadly the disease still kills 45 people in the UK every day, showing we still have a long way to go to achieve our goal of tackling bowel cancer.
How to get involved and donate...
This Football Shirt Friday, the Bobby Moore Fund is calling on football fans across the nation to wear their favourite shirt, donate and share a selfie using #FootballShirtFriday to raise vital funds to help tackle bowel cancer.
