I can vividly picture the first time I became aware of the Bobby Moore Fund and the wonderful work they do. It was early 2009, I was standing in the Trevor Brooking lower and Stephanie Moore was collecting a cheque before the start of the game.
I was trying to listen to what the announcer was saying over the tannoy but I couldn’t quite make it all out so I asked the person standing next to me and it turned out he had done quite a bit of fundraising for the Fund.
Not only was it incredible to be able to give joy, laughter and hope to children in remote Sandberg but it was amazing/saddening to hear some of the stories about how and why others had ended up on the project. Some had fought off cancer, others had family members who had beaten cancer and there were a few who had lost someone to cancer but we were all united in raising as much money as we could for the Bobby Moore Fund.
But I’m hoping we can raise more than I have ever done before through the Blowing Bubbles for Bobby campaign, which launches this month. We’ve not set a target because we don’t want to limit how much we might be able to raise. Please help us to raise as much money as we can. Together we will beat cancer.
