Sir Bob Murray, founder and chairman of British kitchen manufacturer Omega PLC and property company Sterling Capitol, has penned his autobiography I'd Do It All Again, and is donating 100% of proceeds to charity. Sir Bob is best known as the former chairman of Sunderland AFC and the visionary behind the Stadium of Light, Academy and Beacon of Light. Coming from humble beginnings and striving to educate himself, he became an entrepreneur with a passion for helping others.
The book is funded by Sir Bob and every penny of the sales will be going to the Foundation of Light, Sunderland AFC’s official charity that was established by Sir Bob himself, supporting their ‘Heart on Your Sleeve’ campaign, which aims to bring supporters together to live happier and healthier lives.
Foundation of Light works with up to 20,000 families every year with the aim of tackling health and education inequalities in the UK, encouraging them to stay both physically and mentally active and ultimately improving their lives. Through various initiatives and programmes and links with Sunderland AFC, the Foundation gives families the opportunity to access sports and fitness sessions, mental health resources and experience the facilities at the Beacon of Light community hub.
I’d Do It All Again will be sold exclusively online at www.sirbobmurraybook.com and is available to buy in-person at the Beacon of Light and SAFC stores.
