Ipswich Town are today honouring the memory of their former manager Sir Bobby Robson.

It's five years to the day since he died from cancer, and the anniversary coincides with some remarkable news concerning what the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation has raised in the fight against the disease.

When the former Town and England manager set up the foundation, the target was £500,000. Instead, it has raised an astonishing £7.3 million

His widow Lady Elsie Robson said:

"We've achieved far more than we ever expected.

He (Mr Robson) would be astonished to know what we've achieved and what we've done with the money. It unites people who are interested in football and affected by cancer. It unites them somehow across our region and beyond."

– Lady Elsie Robson

The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation was set up after he was inspired by his oncologist Professor Ruth Plummer, who told him funding for research was needed.

Today Lady Elsie is at Ipswich Town's Portman Road stadium for what's been designated as the Bobby Robson Open day.

She'll receive a cheque for the foundation from the Football Association.

It's being held in conjunction with the football club's open day.

The highlight will be dozens of Ipswich fans joining the players and management in creating the biggest ever team photograph.

The new league season begins in just over a week's time.

As soon as I heard they (Ipswich) definitely wanted me, my mind was made up straightaway.”
