Jonjo scoops award

Fundraising champion Jonjo Heuerman has been awarded The Flame of Hope Award - Young Volunteer of The Year - by Cancer Research UK.

Jonjo won the hearts of West Ham United supporters everywhere when he walked from Wembley Stadium to the Boleyn Ground in late February, raising more than £22,000 for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

The nine-year old chose to raise funds for the charity in memory of his grandmother and Hammers legend Bobby Moore, who both passed away after suffering from bowel cancer.

His mother Donna said: "He has been taken to the hearts of so many and so many and has such a huge following now. He has even been known to sign a few shirts and autographs! The fans and the club have been so kind to him.

"He is busy planning hIs 2012 walk and plans to build on the success of this year's efforts and is looking forward to walking with everyone again so watch this space."
