Up tempo start for music room plans

February 2011

Children enjoying the Alan Shearer Activity Centre music room

We've got exciting plans to provide a music room at the Alan Shearer Activity Centre and fundraising is already off to a good start thanks to Intersport, Alan Shearer himself and everyone who is busy collecting tokens as part of the Evening Chronicle Wish 10 campaign.

We are extremely grateful for the recent donation of £960 by Intersport which was raised when they held a raffle at one of their recent social evenings. Alan Shearer was guest speaker at the event and this generous contribution has been made in honour of Alan's continuing support of our fundraising efforts.

The addition of a music room to the Alan Shearer Activity Centre will be such a bonus for the children and adults attending the centre. The natural therapy provided by listening to or taking part in musical activities is something which benefits everyone, but particularly those with sensory impairments.

Watch this space for more updates on our music room plans and news of how we are getting on with our fund raising efforts.

If you'd like to make a donation to help support this or any of our many other projects you can find out how on our Support us page.
