An Ipswich Town legend, the captain of England and one of the greatest football managers of all time are supporting the Sir Bobby’s Online Auction which kicks off tomorrow.
The Suffolk-based auction has raised more than £700,000 since it was launched four years ago in memory of legendary England and Ipswich Town manager Sir Bobby Robson.
Bidding starts tomorrow on more than 130 money-can’t-buy sporting and lifestyle prizes offered by the online auction which runs until Sunday, November 29.
A limited edition signed sketchbook showcasing Sir Alex Ferguson’s greatest achievement as Manchester United manager has been donated.
Ipswich Town legend Kevin Beattie has given an England cap from his appearance in the 5-0 win over Cyprus in 1975 while current skipper Wayne Rooney has donated a limited edition Three Lions shirt.
Other prizes include a chance to play at St George’s Park, watch Tottenham train and then enjoy lunch with legendary former skipper Ledley King and two tickets for next summer’s European Championships which includes staying overnight in Paris.
Away from football, there is the chance to bid on a special Red Arrows experience, be on the sidelines during a NFL International Series game next year, a tour of Bentley Motors, enjoying the magnificent ‘Akasha’ catamaran with nine guests and a number of exclusive hotel and restaurant items.
This year’s auction supports the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, League Manager’s Association Charity, West Suffolk Hospital Charity and the GeeWizz charitable foundation launched by Gina Long, founder of the Sir Bobby’s Online Auction, which has been embraced globally and has raised £706,000 to date.
