Our staff members will be sporting their team’s colours in the Liverpool County FA office this week, as we proudly get behind Football Shirt Friday on 27 April in aid of The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.
Taking place during bowel cancer awareness month, Football Shirt Friday is returning for the sixth year, with backing from well-known faces such as Robbie Savage and David Seaman, to help fund life-saving research into bowel cancer.
The fundraising initiative, which asks people to wear their football shirt and donate to the Bobby Moore Fund, draws inspiration from one of the most famous images of Bobby taken at the 1970 World Cup, where he swapped football shirts with Brazil legend Pelé. Seen as a sign of respect between the opposing players, it is a gesture that has been recreated by footballers worldwide ever since.
Bobby’s widow, Stephanie Moore MBE, set up the fund in partnership with Cancer Research UK to raise money for research into the disease.
To donate £5, just text SHIRT to 70200 (terms and conditions apply).
