Bobby Moore charity wristband. Off white plaited friendship band with red stitching.

* 100% fabric
* 2.8cm width and 2cm total length with popper fastening

Burton will donate £1 from every wristband purchased to the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK to help tackle bowel cancer.

Went into Burton today and they had Bobby Moore charity wristbands on the counter advertised at £3 but scanned at £1.50, on closer inspection they were marked at half price but barely noticeable.

Still £3 online.

Here's the website spiel;

Bobby Moore was captain of the only England team to win the World Cup in 1966. He died aged 51 from bowel cancer.

Bowel cancer is the second highest cause of cancer death after lung cancer- around 44 people die from this disease every day in the UK.

I had one of these a couple years back. They're kinda cool but being white they get grubby very quickly. Anything that goes towards to charity can only be a good thing though. Heat added

Surely the whole point of charity wristbands is the more you pay the more goes to charity....

^^^^ As the OP states- "Burton will donate £1 from every wristband purchased to the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK to help tackle bowel cancer."

So whether £3 or £1.50 they'd still donate £1 to the Bobby Moore fund. It just means their income from the wrist bands is smaller.

... or you could bypass the tatty wristband and just give the full £1.50 to the charity direct (and if you're UK tax registered the charity can claim 20p? in the pound back too! ) so your £1.50 donation = £1.80. cancerresearchuk.org/bob…n=2

Almost double what Burtons give. Wouldnt surprise me if Burtons only gave 80p of it and included the extra tax back to make it upto the £1.

Why give some to Burtons? Your choice.

That's a pretty obvious statement, Dave. People can give whatever they want, to whoever they want, whenever they want. This deal is specifically for people who want the wristband.

Why would anyone want the wristband for a reason other than to donate to the charity?

What a strange thing to say.
The deal is for the people who want to buy the wristband, not reminding people they can give to charity any time they want.
Why don't you lead by example, and instead of buying any clothes this year, give all the money to charity instead?

Wearing the wristband also publicises the charity is was bought to support.
For example, all the sports people could have donated a fiver instead of wearing the yellow Livestrong wristbands for the Lance Armstrong/testicular cancer charity a few years back. But how many more millions of pounds has that charity raised by people wearing the wristbands and publicising the cause?

I lost my last one, think i'll walk down later and pick one up.

Being a West Ham fan myself I always give generously. But anything to help out a very good fund...

Mixed agreement with you there. Understand its good publicity, just cant swallow how Burtons can make so much off the back of it (remember they used to sell it for £3 - wheres the extra £1.50 going?) more than they will shell out to sell it or they could afford to do 100% to the charity. I'm not having a pop at the charity itself, or the people who wear the bands, but surely this cant be the best value fund raising/ advertising. I'm sure some people will buy it in good faith to help the charity, others as a 'fashion' accessory, but others would prefer to give a bigger percentage of that money to the charity and not have the wristband but not know how, so thought I'd help make it easier. Just giving options.

Sheesh, we've all got the same goal here which is to get as much money to the charity as possible to help cure this devastating disease.
