Sir Bobby Robson is a true Geordie Gem who set an example all of “us” Geordies can aspire to follow.
Not long before he left us, Bobby thanked all those who helped him to raise over £1.2 million to open the Sir Bobby Robson trials research centre.
Sir Bobby is hereby awarded the first ever Geordie Empire Medal for services to both Geordie charities & of course Geordie sport.
Sir Bobby unfortunately lost his fight against cancer on the 31st of July 2009 but will be remembered by all those who’s life he touched.
