Tuesday 13th May saw the launch of the Bobby Robson Foundation to raise funds to help those suffering with cancer. The legend needs your help.
We don’t need to tell you about Sir Bobby Robson – the man is an Ipswich legend. The following comes from the Bobby Robson Foundation page:
It is exactly 7 weeks to the day on Tuesday 13th May that we launched the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and I am delighted to announce that we have raised a grand total of £526,310 which I am sure you will agree is an amazing achievement in such a short period of time, however, we still want the donations to continue as we will be annnouncing new projects over the coming weeks.
I would like to thank everyone who has contributed in any way – with donations and also the hard work that has gone on behind the scenes. I couldn’t have done this on my own. The generosity of the general public has been absolutely fantastic and I have to say that I am absolutely honoured and proud to have been involved in this project. I think everyone knows by now how I feel about ‘teamwork’ …. and it just goes to prove that great things can be achieved if we all work together.
Thanks to you, The Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre at the Freeman Hospital will be up and running on schedule and the people of the North East will be the very first to benefit from this state of the art facility.
I know a lot of people out there are planning fundraising events over the coming months and I just want to let you know how thrilled I am about that and to say that every penny you raise will help cancer sufferers in the North East…. so please KEEP DONATING !!
Sir Bobby Robson CBE
We at Vital Ipswich support his cause – he moved mountains for us, now it is payback. Please sign the petition so that his other beloved team Newcastle United can play Ipswich in a friendly each summer so that proceeds raised will go towards the foundation.
