The Bobby Moore Walking Football Festival
The Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA have partnered with The Bobby Moore Fund to host a festival day to support and raise money for the charity.
- Venue: SGP Thorncliffe, S35 3HY
- Saturday, 3rd August, 9am-1pm
Bobby Moore was just 51 years old when he died. The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK was set up by Stephanie Moore MBE, Bobby’s widow, in his memory to fund pioneering, life-saving bowel cancer research.
Now in its 26th year, the fund has raised over £26 million and continues to go from strength to strength. Since Bobby’s death, mortality rates for bowel cancer have fallen by more than 30%, but sadly it still kills 44 people in the UK every day, so we still have so much more to do.
The festival will enable new and existing individuals to participate in walking football, through two friendly round robin format tournaments (6 a-side).
- Open age (18+)
- Over 60’s
Entry is open to all, whether you’re an existing walking football team, club, business, league officials, NHS staff, community group or other!
To enter a team all you need to do is provide a £66 donation to our Just Giving page (Click here to donate).
100% of your team entry will go directly to the Bobby Moore Fund to fund life-saving bowel cancer research.
We will also be hosting a raffle on the day of the event so if you would like to kindly donate a prize for the raffle please let us know! All support will be acknowledged on our website and social media platforms.
We look forward to the event day, which will be full of fun for the whole family, while also making a positive impact on a great cause.
If you have any questions regarding the festival please do not hesitate to ask!
