Article on Sir Bobby Robson Foundation for Evening Chronicle – February 29th

RIVAL football teams have come together to support a common cause.

Newcastle United and Sunderland have given match tickets to be auctioned in aid of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
When Sir Bobby Robson launched his charity in March 2008, Newcastle immediately joined forces with Sunderland AFC and Middlesbrough FC as supporters of the foundation’s work against cancer.
And a proud Sir Bobby was one of the first to acknowledge and value the support of the region’s fans.
In the run up to the Toon clashing with Sunderland in the derby game on Sunday, the North East Football Writer’s Association is continuing Sir Bobby’s work by auctioning off two special prizes donated by each club in aid of the foundation.
The two prizes are being auctioned via eBay and have attracted the attention of many fans, with generous bids already being placed.
Newcastle United has donated two tickets in the director’s box to any home game this season, with seats on the half-way line and a three-course carvery meal.
The prize also includes the chance to meet the players and a visit, for two, to Newcastle’s training ground in Benton.
Sunderland has also donated two tickets to their Stadium of Light clash with Liverpool on 10th March.
George Caulkin, a patron of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, speaking on behalf of the North East Football Writer’s Association said: “We’re very grateful to Newcastle and Sunderland for the prizes they have generously donated to help the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. The Football Writers’ Association is particularly pleased to be auctioning them during what is such a special week in the region’s football calendar.
“Sir Bobby may have been a former Newcastle manager, but ultimately he was a man of the North East.”
