Bobby Moore Fund

Bobby Moore was just 51 years old when he died. Shortly after his death in 1993, Bobby’s widow Stephanie Moore MBE set up the Bobby Moore Fund as a restricted fund of Cancer Research UK to raise money for pioneering bowel cancer research.

Since Bobby’s death, the generosity of our supporters has enabled us to raise over £28 million and mortality rates for bowel cancer have fallen by more than 30%.

But sadly the disease still kills 45 people in the UK every day, showing we still have a long way to go to achieve our goal of tackling bowel cancer.

Help us tackle bowel cancer

Despite the cancellation of many of our events due to the impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, we remain tirelessly committed to tackling bowel cancer.

Now more than ever we need the generous support of people like you.
