Newcastle Building Society Backs The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation

April 24th, 2012 | 22 Comments |

The Alnwick branch of the Newcastle Building Society, has come up with a unique way of supporting the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. You can now open a Sir Bobby Robson Foundation ISA. This is a savings account which will provide an additional cash donation to the charity, for every pound invested by customers.

The Newcastle Building Society has introduced the partnership to mark the Foundation’s fourth anniversary.

“ISA” is short for Individual Savings Account which is a financial product available to residents of the United Kingdom. It is designed for the purpose of investment and savings with a favourable tax status.

Sir Bobby’s widow, Lady Elsie, is delighted about it. She said:

“It was a great pleasure to help launch this new account and we’re grateful to the Newcastle for thinking of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.”

“It’s a very creative way of helping the charity and we will ensure every penny donated is spent wisely.”

“We’ve just celebrated the Foundation’s fourth anniversary and receiving support from an organisation with a heritage like the Newcastle Building Society is a marvellous present. My husband would have been as proud as punch with this fitting gesture.” (more…)
