Catherine McKinnell MP visits the Alan Shearer Activity Centre

Newcastle North MP Catherine McKinnell rolled up her sleeves and helped out in Brownes Cafe on her recent visit to the Alan Shearer Centre. Catherine, an employment solicitor, was taking part in National Volunteers Week.

She was given a brief tour by Manager, Amanda Head and St Cuthberts Care's Acting Chief Executive, Moira Ashman, who explained something of the Centre's history and what it offers disabled people in the area.

As an MP, Catherine is well aware of the increasing importance of maintaining facilities such as the Alan Shearer Centre in a time of financial stringency and cut-backs and is keen to lend her support to our work.
