Sir Bobby Robson – A Celebration, supported by Virgin Money, was a very special evening of music, memories and laughter as family, friends, musicians, comedians, football greats and admirers gathered on the banks of the Tyne to remember Sir Bobby on the night he would have turned 80.
The charity night at The Sage Gateshead on 18th February raised funds for The Alan Shearer Foundation and Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and featured some of Sir Bobby’s ‘Desert Island Discs’ as well as excerpts from his final interviews.
A very special souvenir programme was produced for the night and features previously unseen images of Sir Bobby, Lady Elsie’s thoughts on her husband’s musical preferences and information about the two charities benefitting from the event. It also includes a touching retrospective on Sir Bobby by Foundation Patron George Caulkin of The Times.
A limited number of Sir Bobby Robson – A Celebration souvenir programmes are now available from The Back Page shop in Newcastle and from Newcastle United’s official club shop at St James’ Park. A donation of £3 per copy is suggested, which will benefit The Alan Shearer Foundation and Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
