Alan keeps his charity "on course"

August 2012

We are delighted to announce that the first of our annual corporate fundraising events for the Alan Shearer Foundation was a great success. Held at Close House Hotel, our golfing day saw 18 teams taking to the course to compete for the Alan Shearer Trophy. As a tribute to Alan's career at Newcastle United, the Hotel specially renamed their No 19 club house the No 9 for the day.

The drizzle that morning didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the golfers, as most of them went on to attend the CHUF (Children's Heart Unit Fund) race night, where it was announced that the winning team was Alan's four-man team. The race day was rounded off with an auction held in support of both CHUF and The Alan Shearer Foundation where a number of exclusive prizes including a training session with Newcastle goalie Steve Harper and a luxury holiday were fought over in a bidding frenzy.

The final total raised from the day will be announced later this week.

Our next corporate event will be held at the Newcastle/Gateshead Hilton on 30 November. If you would like to help us reach our goal of raising £250,000 by attending or donating to our event please contact the Foundation.
