Football Shirt Friday

28 April 2017

U's staff join in national campaign.

Colchester United's staff have joined fans from across the country in digging out their football shirts to help fund life-saving research into bowel cancer.

Taking place during Bowel Cancer awareness month this April, Football Shirt Friday is back for the fifth year with support from well-known faces from the sporting, business and acting worlds, with Robbie Savage, Sir AP McCoy, Sir Geoff Hurst, David James, Bianca Westwood and Tom Davis getting in on the action.

The fundraising initiative, which asks people to wear their football shirt and donate £2 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 Brazilian legend Pelé. 
Donation Ts&Cs can be found here 

To donate £2 to the Bobby Moore Fund, text GOAL002 to 70070. Texts cost £2 plus 1 standard rate text. Cancer Research UK receives £2.
