Claire mobilises fundraisers for the Alan Shearer Foundation

December 2012

The Alan Shearer Foundation has received a wonderful donation to its funds from Alan Shearer Activity Centre regular Claire Truslove. Claire's son Ernie loves coming to the Centre as often as he can, so Claire decide to organise a special fundraising event at the Hobson Golf Club in Burnopfield.

The club helped her to stage a Race Night and local businesses in the Stanley area donated 40 prizes and vouchers for her raffle. Durham County Army Cadet Force mobilised to support her too, adding the proceeds of their own fundraising efforts to the money raised on the night to produce a remarkable total of £1,170.

Many thanks to Claire and to all her family and friends who helped make the night such a great success.
