Celebrities take aim for the Bobby Moore Fund

Cancer Research UK

THE Bobby More Fund for Cancer Research UK has teamed up with EJ Churchill Shooting Ground to offer a clay shoot with a difference; a great opportunity to have a fantastic day’s shooting plus the chance to mix with celebrities. David Seaman MBE, James Hickman (World 200m Butterfly Champion), Linda Lusardi and husband Sam Kane are some of the celebrities taking part this year.

The event, on Thursday 14th September 2006 at EJ Churchill Shooting Ground, in Buckinghamshire, will raise vital funds for research into bowel cancer. Latest figures reveal clay shooting is fast becoming the most popular country pursuit as record levels of people sign up and take aim.

The Clay Shoot is open to teams of four and is a fantastic opportunity to take clients for a fun day out. The day begins with breakfast, followed by a morning of shooting, including a ZZ helice stand, high tower flurry and a ‘fire and feather’ flurry. After the shooting there is a champagne reception, lunch and a silent auction of exclusive, ‘money can’t buy’ packages and rare sporting memorabilia.

Cancer Research UK, in partnership with Stephanie Moore MBE, established the Bobby Moore Fund in 1993 following Bobby’s death from bowel cancer in the same year. The Fund raises money for research into bowel cancer and informs people about the disease. Bowel cancer is a curable disease if caught early, yet it still claims 45 lives every day in the UK.

Stephanie Moore says: “The Bobby Moore Fund Clay Shoot is always a fantastic day out and is open to enthusiasts and novices alike. This is the 40th anniversary of the England team’s victory of Germany and we hope to raise a significant amount to help life-saving research into bowel cancer.
