The Blyth Academy has supported the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation since the charity was launched in 2008. Fundraising has included Christmas and summer fayres, raffles, tombolas, a bag pack and bakery sales. Pauline Buglass and Liz Luff from the Foundation have visited the Academy and have been impressed by the students' dedication to raising funds for this important local charity and the high regard that the students feel towards Sir Bobby. Our football team was given permission to display the charity logo on their strips. Staff from the Open Learning Centre met Lady Elsie Robson who passed on her thanks and good wishes towards our young fundraisers.
We feel that it is a privilege that we have been able to help The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and we are sure that Sir Bobby would be proud of our efforts.
