Our west London photographer S.C.’s latest shoot was a charity dinner for The Bobby Moore Foundation. The evening was hosted by his widow Stephanie Moore MBE, and private bank Arbuthnot Latham.

The Bobby Moore Foundation is a charity which was formed in 1993 by Stephanie Moore and Cancer Research UK. The Foundation is a legacy created in memory of Stephanie’s late husband, in order to raise public awareness and funding for research into bowl cancer. Since the tragic death of her husband, Stephanie has worked tirelessly to make sure Bobby didn’t succumb to bowl cancer at the age of fifty one for nothing.

To date, funds raised have established seventeen Bobby Moore Research Fellowships and a new bowl cancer laboratory at St Mark’s Hospital in London. The foundation has raised over seventeen million pounds, and over two million pounds is raised every year through events like this one.

The exclusive dinner was held at Arbuthnot’s London offices in Ropemaker Street, with the very animated West Ham Manager Sam Alardyce as the after dinner speaker. Arbuthnot Latham specialises in private banking and wealth management, the company very recently appointed ex Coutts executive James Fleming as their CEO and Board Member. Fleming is renowned for his expertise and candour in the market place and a huge advocate of championing exceptional causes

Bobby Moore OBE and former England Captain, was one of the three West Ham players considered a vital factor behind England’s triumph in the 1966 World Cup with Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters. Moore, who captained West Ham United for more than ten years, was widely regarded as one of the all time greats of the football world. Pelé alluded of Moore, ‘He was my friend as well as the greatest defender I ever played against.’ Alf Ramsey was quoted as saying, ‘My captain my leader my right hand man. He was the spirit and the heartbeat of the team.’
