Commemorative bricks update

West Ham United has once again joined forces with fund-raisers for the Bobby Moore Fund to reunite supporters with their treasured commemorative bricks from the Boleyn Ground.

Dozens of volunteers supporting the Bobby Moore Fund and the Club’s efforts helped to collect the bricks from the memorial walls on the Sir Trevor Brooking and Bobby Moore Stands and continue to work in partnership with the Club to locate the individual or family who commissioned them.

The latest brick collection day is taking place this coming Saturday, August 12, at the West Ham United Supporters’ Club in Castle Street, next to the site of the Boleyn Ground, from midday to 6pm.

West Ham United was originally advised in 2015 that there was no guarantee the bricks could be saved as part of the demolition process, and arranged for every message to be reproduced on a stone at Champions Place at London Stadium as a lasting memorial.

However, the demolition company managed to keep many of the bricks intact and has worked with West Ham United and the Bobby Moore Fund to return them to their owners with more than 100 bricks already handed back.

Involved in the initiative is 15-year-old Jonjo Heuerman who, with the help of his family and fellow West Ham supporters, has raised more than £300,000 for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

He was inspired to start fundraising in 2009 following the death of his beloved nanny, Lyn, to bowel cancer and in recognition of Club legend Bobby Moore who passed away of the same illness. Jonjo’s fundraising achievements have gained national recognition and he became the youngest ever recipient of the British Empire Medal in the 2016 New Year’s Honours list.

Jonjo’s mum Donna, who raises money for the Bobby Moore Fund, said: “We are delighted to be working with West Ham United to ensure as many commemorative bricks as possible are returned to their owners.

“It has been very emotional to see people came from far and wide to collect their treasured bricks. This is all about re-uniting people with these sentimental items and we would also like to take the opportunity to thank people for the generous donations they have chosen to make to support the Bobby Moore Fund as part of this process.”

All of the commemorative bricks have now been recovered and logged. Due to the nature of the process, although every care is taken, not all bricks were able to be salvaged.

If you had a commemorative brick at the Boleyn Ground the Club would be delighted to hear from you to help you locate it please contact: [email protected], or visit where you can search a log of the recovered bricks.
