A PUB is holding a family fun day to raise money for a memorial garden in tribute to football legend Bobby Moore.

The Tribute 2 Moore Family Fun Day Sunday is due to take place at the New Kings Arms, Wrotham Road, Meopham, on Sunday, August 30.

Bobby Moore, who died in 1993 of bowel cancer, captained West Ham for more than 10 years and won a place in the record books by leading England to the 1966 World Cup

As well as raising money for the garden, which is being built at Moore's old school in Leytonstone, east London, money collected on the day will also go to Bowel Cancer Research at the Royal London Hospital.

Pub manager Zoe Heritage said: "If The New Kings Arms can help in any way by raising money for Bowel & Cancer Research and the Bobby Moore Memorial Garden, then myself and all of the staff will certainly do all we can to make the day an outstanding success."

Former boxers from the London Ex-Boxing Association are also due to attend, as well as a close up magic show and live entertainment from the Jimmy Etherege acoustic band.

Other activities include a falconry show, bouncy castle and face painting.

The event runs from 11am until 6pm, admission is free. For more details contact the New Kings Arms on 01474 812248.
