Sir Bobby honoured at National Football Museum 1966 World Cup Exhibition
Find A Better Way founder Sir Bobby Charlton was honoured today at a ceremony at the National Football Museum launching the new 1966 World Cup Exhibition.
Heroes from the 1966 team are to be immortalized in bronze on the world’s first ‘Football Walk of Fame,’ located outside the museum. Images for the bronze plaques are being designed by legendary sports artist Paul Trevillion, creator of ‘You Are the Ref’, and one of the original artists of the classic ‘Roy of the Rovers.’
Also at today’s ceremony, the charity single On the Wings of Destiny (Spirit of 66) – proceeds of which are donated to Find A Better Way – was performed for the assembled guests. The song was written and produced by David Courtney, recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London, and features female Russian recording artist Marina Kapuro. Cover art for the single was also created by Paul Trevillion.
Today’s event was an especially significant for Sir Bobby who, besides being a member of the victorious 1966 England team and founder of Find A Better Way, also serves as honorary president for the National Football Museum.
