Penfold's progress

West Ham United fan Jamie Penfold will honour the memory of Hammers and England legend Bobby Moore OBE when he undertakes an amazing endurance challenge in June.

Jamie will run and cycle more than 400 miles from Newcastle United's St James' Park to the Boleyn Ground over six days between 17-22 June to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

The professional photographer will run three marathons over three consecutive days along Hadrian's Wall before cycling from Newcastle to east London via Wembley over the next three days.

Jamie, who was picked as a London 2012 Torchbearer in recognition of the fundraising he has done for the charity, is hoping to raise £5,000 for the Bobby Moore Fund.

The charity was founded in 1993 following the death of West Ham and England captain Moore from bowel cancer at the age of just 51. Since then, the Fund has raised more than £19m for research into and raising awareness of the disease.

"I've been training for a couple of months now," confirmed Jamie. "It will feel such an achievement when I reach London on 22 June, knowing that I've done it in memory of such a great man.

"Bobby was cruelly taken from us at the age of 51, 20 years ago this year. He never got the recognition he deserved in life and that is why the Bobby Moore Fund is so important.

"Hopefully every pound raised is another step towards finding a cure for this terrible disease."
