Young’s Seafood Limited recently held a ‘Football Shirt Friday’ event where employees across the company’s Grimsby sites were encouraged to wear their teams’ football shirts at work in order to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund. Young’s Seafood Limited employees from the Grimsby factories and the head office supported a wide variety of teams from the local favourite, Grimsby Town to Manchester United and raised an impressive £250 for charity.
Pete Ward, CEO of Young’s Seafood Limited commented; “I’m delighted that so many Young’s Seafood Limited staff got involved in Football Shirt Friday and came in wearing their team colours. Not only did we have a great time but we also managed to raise money for a fantastic charity. As part of our Fish for Life Corporate Responsibility programme, we’re committed to playing a positive role in the communities where we are based and supporting the Bobby Moore Fund by hosting our own Football Shirt Friday is our way of saying thank you for the inspirational work they do.”
In 1993 Stephanie Moore, in partnership with Cancer Research UK, established the Bobby Moore Fund in memory of her late husband, the legendary footballer. The fund raises money for research into bowel cancer and also seeks to increase public awareness of the life-threatening disease. To date, the Bobby Moore Fund has raised over £21 million and these funds are spent on pioneering bowel cancer research carried out by leading scientists working across the UK.
