Bobby Moore Fund: the story so far

2017 marks the fifth year of Football Shirt Friday. Since 2013, thousands of pounds has been raised and invested in pioneering bowel cancer research carried out by leading scientists working across the UK.

Bobby Moore was just 51 years old when he died. The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK was set up by Stephanie Moore MBE, Bobby's Widow, in his memory to fund pioneering, life-saving bowel cancer research.

Since the Bobby Moore Fund was established in 1993, bowel cancer mortality rates have fallen by more than a quarter (28%), and over 23.5 million has been raised for research. But we still have so much more to do.

Our purpose is simple to bring forward the day when bowel cancer is cured.
