Limited edition Bobby tees on sale

Mouth artist Henry Fraser has created a new design of West Ham United's most decorated player to raise funds for the Bobby More Fund.

Fraser, who paints with his mouth having been paralysed in a holiday accident seven years ago has added his new design to a new limited edition t-shirt, available in white, red, blue or grey, the proceeds of which will go towards the charity started in Moore's honour.

"I wanted to celebrate the football World Cup by selling these garments to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund, which raises funds to bring forward the day when bowel cancer is cured," said Fraser. "All the profits from this campaign will go to the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

"My life was turned upside down when I dislocated the fourth vertebrae in my neck leaving me unable to move anything from my neck down. In 2015 I found an app on my iPad that I could use for drawing by holding a stylus in my mouth and touching the screen. I loved it.

"I may not be able to use my hands to do any of work but sometimes you just have to adapt to lifeís challenges. The subjects of my work consist of those who have inspired me for a long time, those who have played big parts in my life over the last six years and those that have inspired me more recently.

Henry hard at work

"After my accident I thought so many doors had been shut. In fact itís opened so many more. If it wasnít for the accident then Iíd probably be leading a very boring life at the moment. Adversity has given me a gift."

You can purchase one of Henry's fantastic t-shirts, available for just £15, from www.communitee.co.uk/spiritof66. They are limited to just 300, so purchase early to avoid disappointment.
