The East Anglia children's charity EACH will share proceeds from an on-line auction of sporting memorabillia and 'money can't buy' experiences, in memory of the former Ipswich Town and England manger Sir Bobby Robson.

FC Zenit St Petersburg manager Andre Villas-Boas is the latest football celebrity to donate a prize for the charity auction online auction which ends on Sunday evening (October 19) - the opportunity to join him in Russia on a trip of a lifetime.

Two football fans will meet Andre Villas-Boas and go to a FC Zenit St. Petersburg home game as guests of Mr Villas Boas.

“Sir Bobby is a true legend of the game,’ Villas-Boas says. ‘He was a great man, a great manager and a real gentleman. I often think of him and the inspiration he gave me not only at Porto but throughout his life. Sir Bobby has influenced everyone who ever met him with his enthusiasm and knowledge of the game. The fact that so many fellow managers and clubs are supporting this campaign speaks more about his legacy than I ever could. I am proud to support the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and the Sir Bobby EACH Auction and I hope fans across the country and throughout the world will do the same.”
