The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK is to hold a charity golf day next month.
The event will take place on Thursday, September 11, at the Mount Murray Hotel and, as in previous years, is attracting strong support from the island’s business community with 16 teams already signed up, an opportunity to win a BMW 1 Series car for any player achieving a hole in one on the 11th hole and a prize presentation dinner in the evening, also at the Mount Murray Hotel.
Since they began in 2011 the golf days have raised more than £60,000 for the fund, committed to bowel cancer research in memory of legendary West Ham United player Bobby Moore OBE, who died of the disease in February 1993, aged just 51.
For the fourth year in succession Celton Manx is to sponsor it.
Celton Manx executive director Bill Mummery said: ‘As operator of the global sports book SBOBET, sponsors of West Ham United Football Club from 2009 to 2013, Celton Manx is an ardent supporter of the Bobby Moore Fund and its pioneering research into a disease that can be treatable if detected early. We are pleased to be contributing to Bobby Moore’s legacy through our association with this event which, thanks to the hard work and professionalism of the organising committee, will not only offer a great day’s golf but also help raise vital funds for the charity.’
Stephanie Moore MBE, who founded the Bobby Moore Fund in 1993 in partnership with Cancer Research UK said: ‘Bobby was great friends with Lars and his wife Geraldine and so all these years on I am proud and grateful to them both, as well as to the organising team, for all the hard work and dedication that will help make this, the fourth Bobby Moore Fund charity golf Day, a tremendous success. It is always a fabulous day of golf and fun camaraderie, culminating in a glamorous dinner. All the proceeds are spent on dedicated bowel cancer research by Cancer Research UK. Bowel cancer is still the country’s second highest killing cancer. Monies raised will help our scientists to find better ways of diagnosing and treating this disease as well as working towards the day when bowel cancer is cured.’
