More Funds For The Fund

Hammers fan Chris Ward, who cycled to Birmingham from London for the final day of the football season, has collected £1,350 for the Bobby Moore fund so far.

He says: "Well, I made it - but unfortunately West Ham didn't!

"There was a West Ham supporter at St Andrew's who saw my attire and said to me: 'What did you do? Cycle here?'

"I said 'actually, yes, for the Bobby Moore fund' - and he immediately got £5 out of his pocket.

"I ended up going 135 miles from London to Birmingham, and I would like to thank everyone that sponsored me."

Chris, who suffered four punctures along the way, is thinking of making the last day trip an annual event, hoping that, when the fixtures are released on Thursday, June 19, it doesn't pair West Ham with a trip to Rotherham or Wigan.

Stephanie Moore, who of course set up the Bobby Moore fund, says: "We are very indebted to Chris for choosing the Bobby Moore Fund.

"I would like to say well done and thanks to Chris. It was a unique idea, and the sacrifice and focus were something very special - especially with those punctures!"
