City supports Football Shirt Friday

Staff raise money to fight bowel cancer

by George Wigmore (Senior Communications Officer)

Staff across City University London wore their football shirts to work on Friday to support research into bowel cancer and to raise money for Cancer Research UK and the Bobby Moore Fund.

Mainly involving the School of Health Sciences, Finance, and Properties and Facilities, staff managed to raise £900, considerably more than the £500 target.

The School also hosted a ‘Spot the Ball’ competition, which was won by Maura Callan and Louise Mullins.

Speaking about the day, Julie Attenborough, Associate Dean in the School of Health Sciences, said:

“We wanted to wear our football shirts on Friday to remember our colleague Roberta Williams and raise money for a fantastic cause. Thank you to all the staff who brought in a shirt and donated as all funds will go towards continuing the fight against bowel cancer.”
