POPULAR local festival Cornbury is the latest event to help raise thousands of pounds for cancer services in memory of Sir Bobby Robson.
The festival has donated four 2014 camping tickets to the Sir Bobby’s Breakthrough online charity auction which draws to a close this Sunday.
Set in the rolling hills of Oxfordshire and known for its star-studded and classy reputation, Cornbury will return to the beautiful spot in Great Tew Park for its 10th year in 2014.
Last year’s Cornbury featured headliners Van Morrison, Keane and Squeeze plus music from the likes of Amy McDonald, James Arthur, Imelda May and the Proclaimers and has been hailed by local people as a safe and family friendly festival for all ages.
The Cornbury festival spokesman said: "We’re really happy to be donating tickets for next year's Cornbury festival. Sir Bobby's Breakthrough is doing a great thing in memory of a great man, Sir Bobby Robson. I urge everyone to get online now and help raise funds for this very important cause"
Cornbury isn’t the only festival to get involved in the charity auction; four tickets for Latitude Festival in Suffolk are also up for grabs, offering the winner a weekend at one of the most revered music shows in the UK boasting a line-up of the hottest artists in the industry.
The UK has become famous for its music festivals and they’re now considered an established part of Britain’s summer culture. There are more than 450 festivals a year in Britain offering music-lovers a weekend of camping, headline bands and wellies, attracting visitors from all over the globe.
Sir Bobby’s Breakthrough online charity auction has already seen hundreds of bids pour in and is aiming to raise an ambitious £1million in memory of football legend, Sir Bobby Robson.
Cornbury Festival joins an impressive list of celebrities, sports stars and leading businesses who have donated items to the cause and are helping raise funds including Bill Nighy, Amanda Holden, David Walliams, Lorraine Kelly and Piers Morgan.
Other prizes include a face-to-face lunch with actor Bill Nighy, a tour round Lorraine Kelly’s studio, tickets to the JLS goodbye concert, a set of David Walliams bestselling children’s books or tickets to the hit program Britain’s Got Talent with Amanda Holden.
With the auction ending on the 27th October, organisers are urging people across the country to get involved now and get their hands on some fantastic items while helping to raise money for charity.
Sir Bobby’s Breakthrough will raise crucial funds for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and cancer services within two Suffolk Hospitals.
