Auction collection grows

It is day five of bidding in Sir Bobby’s Breakthrough Auction and the collection of priceless prizes continues to grow.

The auction, which is running online until October 23, aims to raise £250,000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

It has been organised in memory of footballing legend Sir Bobby Robson and breast cancer fund-raiser Sally Balch.

Organisers have added a further 26 auction lots since Monday and have more amazing prizes to include before the weekend, as more sports personalities, clubs and businesses donate to the cause.

Gina Long, event founder, said: “I’m watching in awe at people’s generosity. It’s unprecedented how many people are signing up to the site already.”

The team have also planned a glamorous ball which is being held at The Apex, in Bury St Edmunds, on October 20.
