Our wishes come true ... thanks to you

Wish 11

The Alan Shearer Activity Centre would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who collected tokens from the Evening Chronicle's Wish 11 campaign which raised an impressive £473.

The money will be invested in the very popular hydrotherapy pool and plans are to purchase some special inflatables plus buoyant waterproof interactive sensory equipment.

Centre Manager Maxine Pearson said: "The hydrotherapy pool is very popular with our disabled users. With moving lights, fibre optic shimmer curtains and water power jets users can have a fun-filled stimulating experience in a safe relaxing environment and the new equipment will further enhance their enjoyment."
