SIR Bobby Robson today literally put his signature to the cancer appeal that already bares his name.

The Bobby Robson Jubilee Appeal was set up to raise £70,000 for some state of the art cancer treatment equipment for Ipswich Hospital.

And Ipswich man Barry Andrews, of Nacton Road, came up with the idea of asking the great man to sign a car bonnet for auction.

Sir Bobby was himself treated for cancer at Ipswich Hospital and he pledged his continued support for the "people that saved my life".
