Jonjo Heureman has smashed the £10,000 barrier after an incredible walk from Wembley to West Ham United this weekend in aid of the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research.
The nine-year-old arrived at the Boleyn Ground just before kick-off against Liverpool on Sunday lunchtime with mum Donna, dad Gary and sister Megan in tow. Before entering the stadium, he paused for a service at the World Cup winners' statue, where club chaplain Alan Bolding said a prayer and Jonjo laid a wreath.
Upon entering the stadium to rapturous applause from all four corners, Jonjo did a lap of the pitch before walking to the centre-circle to meet Liverpool and West Ham United captains Steven Gerrard and Matthew Upson.
He had been given a great send-off from the national stadium last Friday by club legend Sir Trevor Brooking and Bobby's widow Stephanie Moore. Sir Trevor was also there to meet him on Sunday at the walk's end, along with Mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales. Club chairman David Gold sent his regards after illness meant he could not attend.
Jonjo has been raising money in memory of his nan Lyn and Bobby Moore, with both having lost their lives to bowel cancer. He spent a day at Chadwell Heath earlier this week, with players and management all wishing him well in his challenge.
