The perfect Birthday gift

July 2012

John Harris is not a man who is difficult to please when it comes to gifts. In fact he told family and friends exactly what he wanted this year for his 60th birthday; a large donation to The Alan Shearer Foundation.

John, who is a personal friend of Alan, even handed out official Foundation donation slips at his birthday party so eligible guests could Gift Aid their donations, ensuring that the Foundation gains an extra 25p in refunded tax for every £1 donated.

We extend our thanks to John and all his friends for their generosity, who contributed a marvellous £3,012.50 in gift aided donations to the Foundation.

If like John and his guests (pictured below) would like to ask for Birthday donations, please contact us. Alternatively if you would like to support The Alan Shearer Foundation in other ways you can find out how on our donating page.
