Jonjo Heuerman will be looking forward to seeing this Bobby Moore statue again - as it’ll mark the end of his gruelling 800 mile challenge.
The Hammers-mad 12-year-old is about to walk and cycle to all the Premiership clubs to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research.
He’s training daily before his two-week challenge begins at Newcastle United’s homeground on February 14.
Although he has been completing huge challenges for the charity in memory of his nan and Moore, his footballing hero, since he was nine, this one has got him feeling nervous.
“I haven’t done anything on this scale before but it’ll be pretty exciting if I pull it off,” Jonjo admitted.
An angel ceremony to celebrate the end of the challenge will be held at the statue in Barking Road at 11.30am on February 28.
