Mooro to be honured as airline flag bearer



Norwegian airways has unveiled the latest in its series of British tail fin heroes, with Hammers and England Legend Bobby Moore set to feature on one of its B737-800 aircraft. The late West Ham footballer will be the fourth “hero” to be depicted on one of the low-cost carrier’s aircraft, following author Roald Dahl, pioneering pilot Amy Johnson, and aviation entrepreneur Sir Freddie Laker.

The news coincided with yesterday’s Football Shirt Friday, a fundraising initiative that helps fund life-saving research into bowel cancer, by encouraging people to wear their favourite football shirt and donate £2 to the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

Bobby’s widow Stephanie Moore MBE, said: “This is such a wonderful way to remember Bobby and to mark Football Shirt Friday. We want to see the whole nation wear their team’s colours with pride today and believe that together we can and will beat bowel cancer. We have made enormous progress in the last 50 years but sadly bowel cancer still kills 44 people in the UK every day. By joining forces, raising funds and channelling that unbreakable spirit of a football fan to support the Bobby Moore Fund, we can all help bring forward the day when bowel cancer is cured.”
