JONJO’S STORY_

Jonjo is a remarkable, inspiring 15 year old who dedicates much of his time to fundraise for The Bobby Moore Fund in memory of his Nan who passed away from bowel cancer and his football hero, Bobby Moore.

Since the age of nine, Jonjo has completed six annual challenges, and delivered hundreds of events. His fundraising total now exceeds £300,00 and the charity he works with estimates he has generated over £1m in public awareness; saving more lives than he will ever know.

Jonjo’s ability to mobilise other young people to join his fundraising mission is credit to his passion and dedication to his message ‘that everyone can be an everyday hero.’

Despite raising hundreds of thousands of pounds Jonjo has not set a fundraising target, instead his target ‘is a cure’, something he will aspire to and inspire in others for years to come.

Jonjo is also believed to be the youngest person on the New Year Honours list, receiving his medal at just 13 years old, proof of his incredible drive to change the lives of cancer sufferers from across the world.
