Sir Bobby's Breakthrough Auction

Lacy Scott & Knight are proud to be the chosen auctioneers for Sir Bobby's Breakthrough Online Auction. As members of the committee we are also charged with securing prizes for this amazing event. The Online Auction in 2011 along with the Ball in Suffolk raised an impressive £248,000 in just two weeks for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Breakthrough Breast Cancer. In 2011 "money-can't-buy" online auction lots were donated by sports stars, sporting bodies, celebrities, companies and individuals from around the world. They included Sir Alex Ferguson, Josep 'Pep' Guardiola, Andre Villas Boas, Alan Pardew, Arsene Wenger, Lewis Hamilton, Gary Lineker, Graeme Swann, David Beckham, Ant and Dec and more.

This year, the auction lots are bigger and better and we would love for our Auction Centre clients to get involved. There are three ways you can get involved to help us reach our £1 million goal:

  • The first is to donate a prize for the online auction whether it's a holiday, a VIP football experience, holidays, weekend breaks, a fine dining extravaganza, or a work of art.
  • The second is by registering to take part in our online auction which is open for bids between 10th - 27th October 2013.
  • The third is to help us by simply spreading the word!

The money raised will go towards supporting clinical trials for new cancer treatments, ongoing support of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Breakthrough Breast Cancer, as well as both the Ipswich and West Suffolk hospitals, which are close to the hearts of the Robson family. If you are able to give your support to this fantastic event, please don't hesitate to contact Edward Crichton at the Auction Centre for further information or to discuss possible donations.
