Sir Bobby Robson Foundation For a number of years we have been working with the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and have so far donated over £2.5m to the Charity. The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation funds projects within the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. As well as benefiting cancer patients from across the North East and Cumbria it also significantly contributes to the global fight against the disease. The Foundation's work includes the clinical trials of drugs at the Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre at the Northern Centre for Cancer Care in Newcastle. Our Sir Bobby Robson savings accounts have now become Community Saver accounts but they continue to generate an ongoing donation made by Newcastle Building Society to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation via the Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland. To date the Society is its largest corporate donor.
