Last week the team at DNA Insurance joined in with Football Shirt Friday to raise money to kick bowel cancer for good!
This fantastic cause was to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK who is dedicated to beating bowel cancer in memory of the legendary football player Bobby Moore.
Football fans across the UK and non-football fans, who just wanted to get involved with fundraising either pulled on their favourite strip, borrowed a shirt, represented their local side or even braved it and took on the challenge of wearing a rival shirt.
The inspiration for this fundraising event comes from the famous shot at the 1970 World Cup in Mexico with Bobby Moore and Pele swapping shirts.
Pele, a close friend of Bobby’s says “The picture of Bobby and I swapping shirts at the 1970 World Cup brings the memories flooding back. It remains iconic to this day and I think it’s a great inspiration for the Bobby Moore Fund’s Football Shirt Friday! Swap your favourite football shirts with your friends in April, and help Make Bobby Proud by supporting life-saving bowel cancer research.”
The whole team at DNA Insurance got involved and proudly wore their football shirts to work, we had many different football strips in the office although the majority of people were wearing and supporting West Ham. We also had one QPR fan but no one was brave enough to wear a rival football shirt!
If you couldn’t wear your football shirt on the 11th you can join in on any Friday in April! If you are taking part, you can donate by texting GOAL002 to 70070 to donate £2 or get involved online: http://bobbymoorefund.cancerresearchuk.org/
