Five figures within 24 hours for Foundation

June 2012

We are delighted to announce that The Alan Shearer Foundation has just received its very first Gift Aid donation totalling £31,250 which was pledged just one day after its launch. This is a staggering sum and is a fantastic start to its fundraising.

The benefactor, who would prefer to remain anonymous, was so impressed with the aims of the Foundation, emailed Alan direct saying: "I think what you are doing with the Foundation is tremendous and I am very happy to support it."

Austin Donohoe, Chief Executive of St Cuthberts Care said: "This is a significant sum of money from one individual and we can't express our thanks enough for such generosity."

The Foundation is receiving pledges and cheque and text donations every day so please keep supporting it and don't forget to keep them updated on your fundraising activities. The Foundation can receive donations by text, online, by telephone or by mail. To find out more please visit their website.
