Cory and Alan together

A 10-year-old brain tumour survivor is set to caddy for Alan Shearer in a charity golf day organised by the youngster in aid of the Foundation.

Cory Davison, from Blyth, has been fundraising since he was diagnosed with an aggressive tumour four years ago and has chosen the Alan Shearer Foundation to receive the proceeds from his third "Cory Cup" golf event.

His dad, Steven, said: "Cory and Alan want to raise as much money as possible for this fantastic charity, which Cory has chosen to support after hearing about it as he has got to know Alan and they have become friends."

The fundraiser takes place at Bedlingtonshire Golf Club on Friday 22 May when teams of four are invited to play 18 holes, enjoy a meal and take part in an auction for fantastic prizes including golf equipment and holidays. The entrance fee is £400 per team.

Cory is still recovering from surgery on the tumour which has left him with damage to his senses and impaired movement, but has not dampened his enthusiasm for fundraising for charity.

"He turns 11 a couple of days before the event so it will be a lovely birthday treat," said Stephen.
