Hi, my name is Jonjo and I have been fundraising in memory of my nan since I was 8 years old. So far, I have raised over £276,000 in funds and over £1.5 million in public awareness for The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK. The charity says I have saved more lives than I will ever know. I walk in memory of people who have also died from cancer; people around the world send me the names of their loved ones they have lost too. I call them my angels and I carry their names with me on my annual challenges. So far, I have walked and cycled almost 2,000 miles for over 500 angels. Every year I have a special memorial service for all of the angels.
I regularly attend, support and arrange fundraising events with my team of helpers and I often speak at events to inspire young people and adults to help and join my fundraising team.
My Nan was really funny and a little bit crazy, at the time when she passed away I was her only grandson. She has 5 grandchildren now and she would be really proud of them. I miss her a lot.
I hope you have been inspired by what I do. Please visit my website to find out more.
I wear it throughout my annual challenge and I make a new one every year with new angel names sent to me during the year. We have just returned from Rome, where we visited the Vatican and walked around this holy city remembering our angels.
The angel names are sent to me from around the world and I have walked for hundreds of cancer angels and I will keep walking for them until I know I have raised enough money and awareness to help to find a cure. Some of the names on the shirt are my family, my Nanny and my great uncles, aunt and great grandad.
Other names are friends of mine; people who I met when they were fighting cancer and they asked me to promise to walk for them if and when the time came.
I keep my promise for the ones who are angels now.
A special project is underway, in partnership with West Ham United, to salvage commemorative bricks installed at West Ham United's former stadium.
The bricks were purchased by fans and installed in three memorial areas around The Boleyn Ground; all of the bricks bear inscriptions and many were bought in memory of lost loved ones.
West Ham United has now moved to the London Stadium and the Boleyn Ground is being demolished. In order for these special bricks to remain intact, Rye Demolition have kindly dismantled the memorial walls at the former stadium, brick by brick.
We are pleased to say that many of the bricks have survived the first phase of the dismantling process and they have been passed to For Nanny and Bobby (FNAB), in aid of The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK, so that volunteers can return the bricks to the original owners and bereaved families.
