Jonjo abseils for Nanny and Bobby

Hammers fan Jonjo Heuerman continues his fund-raising efforts for The Bobby Moore Fund with a charity abseil and fun day at at the Romford YMCA on Sunday.

All the money raised will go to the fund set up in memory of the former football legend Bobby Moore, who died of bowel cancer in 1993.

Jonjo’s initial aim was to raise �10,000 with his walk from Wembley to Upton Park in memory of his grandmother, Lynda Heuerman, and the former West Ham and England captain, who both died from bowel cancer. However, the 10-year-old has now raised close to �30,000 from the walk and follow-up events, and hopes to add to that on Sunday.

The abseiling event runs between 9am and 5pm with a community BBQ, bouncy castles and other fun events. For those scared of heights, there will also be a charity head shave and leg/chest wax on te day.

The final word goes to young Jonjo: “Please help me give my friend Stephanie Moore, Bobby’s wife, a very big cheque when I see her in October. I hope you can come along it will be really fun and I hope I can raise lots of money in memory of my Nanny and Bobby.”
