Support Football Shirt Friday – 17 April 2015

Support Football Shirt Friday

Want to wear your team’s shirt while raising money to help tackle bowel cancer? Then you want to join in Football Shirt Friday!

Whatever team you support, the Bobby Moore Fund want your support to help them raise money to tackle bowel cancer on Friday 17 April. You can unleash that vintage classic, brave the challenge of wearing a rival shirt or represent your local team.

If you can’t make the 17th, then pick any Friday in April.

Here’s how you can help:

* Get your friends or colleagues involved as a team or go solo
* Make your donation
* Wear your football colours with pride on 17 April

The Bobby Moore Fund was set up by Stephanie Moore MBE, in partnership with Cancer Research UK, in 1993, in memory of her late husband, the legendary Bobby Moore, who died from bowel cancer aged just 51.

The Fund raises money for research into bowel cancer and also work to increase public awareness of the disease. Thanks to public support, the Fund has raised over £21m since 1993, through events, partnerships, and activities organised by supporters, with the funds spent on pioneering bowel cancer research carried out by leading scientists working across the UK.

To find out more or to make a donation, visit footballshirtfriday.org.

The Bobby Moore Fund also supports Know the Score, the campaign in which football comes together to tackle bowel cancer.
