Bobby Moore Fund

Bowel cancer is relentless. But so are we.

Bobby Moore was just 51 years old when he died. Shortly after his death in 1993, Bobby’s widow Stephanie Moore OBE 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, thanks to the generosity of our supporters we’ve raised more than £30m and seen mortality rates for bowel cancer fall by more than 30%. 

However, with 46 people losing their life to the disease every day in the UK, we still have a long way to go. 

Only through research will we find better ways to prevent, detect, diagnose and treat bowel cancer.

It's time to tackle bowel cancer

In the 30 years since the Bobby Moore Fund was set up, we've come so far. And together we will go much further.

Play your part by donating to our life-saving research today.
