BlogsI have been supping an ale called Bo66y the past few days in my local pub. It has been brewed by Green King in readiness for the World Cup that is taking place at the moment. A donation is made from each pint that is sold to The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK which is such a worthy cause. It is a light not to blonde beer coming in at 4.2% making it a good season drink. It is also being sold by the bottle and in mini kegs in supermarkets.
Bobby Moore MBE was the former player and captain of English Football team when they lofted the 1966 World Cup. He also had the accolade of earning a European Cup Winners Medal in 1965 and a FA Cup Winners Medal in 1964 when captaining West Ham United.
He was just 51 years old when he died. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest defenders of all time, and was cited by Pelé as “the greatest defender that he had ever played against”.
Shortly after his death in 1993, Bobby’s widow Stephanie Moore MBE set up the Bobby Moore Fund in partnership with Cancer Research UK to fund pioneering bowel cancer research.
Now in its 25th anniversary year, the fund 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 43 people in the UK every day, so we still have so much more to do.
Our purpose is simple – to bring forward the day when bowel cancer is cured.
