Donations to date

July 2012

Within the first 50 days of fundraising we are delighted to announce that so far The Alan Shearer Foundation has raised £57,000.

We have been overwhelmed with the support received so far, and hope that in the coming months that enthusiasm and generosity continues to help us towards our goal of raising £250,000 in our first year.

Community groups, schools and individuals have been extremely supportive and we would like to thank just a few:

All the money raised will be used to benefit disabled people across the North East region by offering a number of free and subsidised short breaks at the Alan Shearer Short Break Centre, continuing to support and develop the free facilities of the Alan Shearer Activity Centre and enabling St Cuthberts Care to expand its disability provision across the region.

Please do not forget that you can help us right now by: donating online, fundraising for us, or by joining us at our events.
