Everyone at the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation was sorry to hear about the death of Jack Allen this week.

Jack, from Forest Hall, Newcastle, was a patient at the Sir Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre and a supporter of the Foundation.

Lady Elsie was proud to meet Jack and his family recently at the launch of the new Football Corridor at the Northern Centre for Cancer Care.

She was proud to receive a cheque for the charity from Jack and his grandson Liam. 

Liam had done a Coast to Coast cycle ride to raise the money and presenting the cheque was an event which Jack's daughter Caroline described as "an afternoon that really did make us all smile."

Our thoughts are with Caroline, Liam and all of Jack's family at this sad time.
