Our Car Raffle Draws to a Close..

24 December 2014

Alan Shearer in the car donated by Benfield Motors

Our raffle with the chance to win a brand new car, donated by Benfield Motors, along with a year’s free insurance, given by Collingwood Insurance, draws to an end today, the 24 December. At the time of writing we have raised a staggering £26,315 through raffle ticket sales. A sincere thanks to all those that supported us by entering the raffle and a special mention to the generous companies and event hosts who allowed us to come in and sell our tickets to their staff and members of the public. It has been a great opportunity to get out and spread the word about the Foundation and the Alan Shearer Centre, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, which it supports

Deborah McDonald the Commercial Executive at Newcastle Racecourse said:

"Newcastle Racecourse is extremely proud to be involved with the Alan Shearer Foundation fundraising, I have seen first-hand the fantastic work the staff at the Centre do and how happy the families are that use the outstanding facilities there. Everyone at the foundation is so passionate to offer support to both children and adults with complex disabilities within the North East.”

The raffle ticket draw will be held at the Alan Shearer Centre on 5 January 2015 and the lucky winner will then be presented with the car by Alan Shearer at the Alan Shearer Foundation Ball on 17 January 2015. All funds raised from the raffle go directly to support the Alan Shearer Centre.

On behalf of the Foundation we wish you all a very Happy Christmas and we look forward to presenting one lucky person with a new car in the New Year!
