Barrier broken

THE Sir Bobby Robson Foundation has announced that it has broken through the £4million fund-raising barrier.

The charity revealed the news as it celebrated its fourth anniversary on Sunday.

It was initially set up by Sir Bobby and Lady Elsie to equip a cancer trials research centre at the Northern Centre for Cancer Care in Newcastle, but surpassed its target in seven weeks. Now it is working to find more effective treatment for cancer.
