Sir Bobby Robson Foundation raises more than £7m on sixth anniversary

The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation reaches their highest fundraising total of more than £7m on the sixth anniversary of the cancer charity.

The charity created in the name of the late Sir Bobby Robson has raised more than £7m for those affected by cancer.

The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation was created in March 2008 - the year before the death of the former football manager, who passed away following a lengthy battle against cancer.

The Foundation have announced on their sixth anniversary that various auctions and donations have accumulated £7,028,352 - the charity's highest fundraising total.

"To have raised this much, well it's breathtaking really," ITV.com quotes Sir Bobby's widow Lady Elsie Robson as saying. "We've had such tremendous support from so many people. I know Bob would be as amazed as I am.

"The generosity we've encountered over the last six years, and I mean generosity of time and effort, not just money, has been incredible."

The Foundation, which is helping international cancer research, benefits patients suffering from the disease within the North-East area and Cumbria.
