Go North East staff are switching their regular uniforms for football shirts to help raise money for cancer research as part of Football Shirt Friday today (20 November).
The event is arranged by the Bobby Moore Fund and Cancer Research UK and asks football fans across the UK to don their favourite shirt, send a selfie and donate to pioneering bowel cancer research.
The event is in its eighth year and has already recruited England striker Harry Kane and midfielder Jordan Nobbs to take part.
“It’s amazing how our team have pulled together throughout the pandemic to fundraise for charities, and this is just the latest of our activities.” Says Go North East Managing Director Martijn Gilbert. “Last week, colleagues dressed up and took part in challenges for Children in Need, raising hundreds of pounds. Time and again, our colleagues impress us with their enthusiasm for getting involved with charity fundraising, like Football Shirt Friday.
“So, this Friday, please join us in donning your colours and helping to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund’s bowel cancer research.”
