After an incredible FA Cup journey, which has taken them to every round of the competition, starting with the Extra Preliminary Round in August, our ‘Sweet FA Cup’ fundraisers completed their charity challenge at Wembley yesterday (30 May).
Mac, Malcolm, Pete and Chris paid for their own tickets and travelled extensively over the last nine months. They received tremendous support from the football community, from lifts on team buses in the early rounds, to tickets being organised by the FA for the Semi-Final.
We’re proud that they put so much time and energy into raising funds for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, including organising a charity night in Newcastle.
Our thanks to Mac, Malcolm, Pete and Chris and everyone who has contributed to their magnificent total of £1,487 raised.
The money will continue the work Sir Bobby began when he launched his charity and will help find more effective ways to detect and treat cancer.
