Walking for Bobby Moore Charity

Anthony Reeves 01

Many Haddenham residents will recall the sad passing of local resident and former policeman, Mike Reeves, in 2016.

His son Anthony is currently looking to raise funds for the Bobby Moore Fund, in memory of his Dad.

Says Anthony:

This month I and some friends are walking The Ridgeway, in memory of Mike Reeves and to raise funds for a bowel cancer charity — 'The Bobby Moore Fund'.

Bowel cancer cruelly took Mike (my Dad) from us in October 2016. He had a love for football and when I saw The Bobby Moore Fund, well, it all came together nicely.

Dad and I used to walk parts of The Ridgeway on days off together and, on one occasion, he walked the entire length of it.

We wanted to do something he would have enjoyed and for a charity that can help stop bowel cancer. So here we go!

Over the course of a week, myself, Fay and our friends — Ryan and Jane — will be walking the 87 miles to raise awareness and funds, in memory of Mike — my Dad and best friend.

Please sponsor us to help make a difference."
