Tickets to the UEFA Champions League final and playing at the home of the England football team are among the prizes in a charity auction set up by a Fornham fund-raiser.

Gina Long started the Sir Bobby’s Online Auction in memory of Sir Bobby Robson four years ago and has since helped it raise more than £700,000.

The money has helped the fight against cancer, most notably by the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

This year’s auction, taking place between November 14 and 29, will be raising money for the Foundation as well as West Suffolk Hospital, the League Manager’s Association Charity and Gina’s own charitable foundation Geewizz.

Gina, a friend of the Robson family for 35 years, said: “The love and respect people still have for Sir Bobby is reflected in the unbelievable prizes we receive.”

Going under the virtual hammer are VIP tickets to the Ballon D’Or Awards, entry to a tournament at St George’s Park, watching Barcelona train at the Nou Camp, and VIP experiences with the Leicester Tigers and the Red Arrows.

Top experiences include fine dining at Maison Bleue and the Great House, a day in a recording studio and seeing Disney on Ice at the O2.
