Football Shirt Friday
Thank you for joining the squad and helping raise over £145,000 on Football Shirt Friday!
This year's Football Shirt Friday, on 20 November, was a fantastic team effort and you played a huge part.
By supporting Football Shirt Friday, you've helped us continue to fund our vital research. For example, our researchers in Belfast are exploring whether immunotherapies – treatments that harness the power of our immune system to fight cancer – could be used to treat advanced bowel cancer in people for whom chemotherapy is not effective. If successful, the results of this project could be translated into a new treatment option throughout the world.
“I’m so grateful that despite the challenges we have all faced and continue to face this year, so many people have still come together in their football shirts to raise awareness and vital funds in Bobby’s memory. Cancer does not stop during a pandemic, and neither do we. However you chose to support Football Shirt Friday, thank you for helping us beat bowel cancer.”
Stephanie Moore MBE, founder of the Bobby Moore Fund
We're so grateful for all your support and really hope to see you in the squad again next year.

What is the 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 £27 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.
