Nine-year-old fundraiser Jonjo Heuerman hopes to add to the £23,000 he has raised since taking part in a charity walk from Wembley to Upton Park football ground.

The West Ham fan, of Leyton Cross Road, Wilmington, will raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund with an end of season disco at Hammers Supporters Club, in Castle Street, next to the Boleyn Ground, on Saturday.

With a £10,00 target, he undertook the charity walk in memory of his own grandmother and Hammers and England legend Bobby Moore, who both died from bowel cancer, but more than doubled his target following the massive support he received.

Earlier this year he met then West Ham manager Avram Grant and players before embarking on the walk.

His disco starts at 7pm. Tickets cost £6.
