Ant and Dec meet Austin at the Alan Shearer Activity Centre

Chief Executive, Austin Donohoe, was on hand to welcome Ant and Dec on behalf of the charity and to show the two Geordie celebrities around the Alan Shearer Activity Centre.

The visit to the Centre was their first together since Ant joined Dec as Patron of St Cuthberts Care in April this year.

School children and other guests were overjoyed at meeting the country's favourite TV double act. Ant and Dec stopped to chat and mingle with guests, posed for photographs and ensured everyone received personalised signed autographs, including the staff team.

Austin said: "We're delighted to welcome Ant and Dec on board as Patrons. They are ideal role models for our young people and I'm very grateful for them being able to find time out of their busy schedule to pop along and to meet some of our guests."
