David Seaman said of the fundraiser: “There’s one thing football fans can agree on: Bobby Moore is a legend. I want people to continue to honour his memory by taking part in Football Shirt Friday and raising money to beat bowel cancer. Whatever you are doing on Friday 26 April, wear your football shirt, donate £5 to the Bobby Moore Fund and help fund life-saving research. Do Bobby proud.”
England legend Bobby Moore OBE was captain of West Ham for over ten years and – even more famously – captained the Three Lions to their maiden World Cup success back in 1966. Moore had his first brush with cancer in 1964, but survived testicular cancer thanks to surgery before bowel and liver cancer took his life 29 years later.
Now in its 26th year, the fund has raised over £26m and continues to reduce mortality rates for bowel cancer, with figures dropping by more than 30% – yet still 44 people lose their lives to the disease every day in the UK.
