Help make our wish come true!

This month sees the launch of the Evening Chronicle's Wish 12 competition, which offers local charities the chance to win a share of a £25,000 kitty. Each charity's share depends upon how many tokens it collects over the three months the competition runs.

Last year over 250 clubs and charities took part and our supporters collected enough tokens to raise £473.59; which was used to buy specialist inflatables and equipment for the Alan Shearer Activity Centre's Hydrotherapy Pool 

This year, all money raised will go towards the Alan Shearer Foundation's £250,000 annual target, which is used to keep facilities at the Activity Centre free of charge for our disabled members and their families.

Centre manager, Jennifer Taylor, says "Free access to our facilities hugely enhances the lives of our disabled members and their families. Please help us to collect the largest number of tokens yet - and encourage all of your family, friends, schools and churches to do the same.  Every token collected swells our funds and helps maintain our free facilities."

Wish12 tokens are appearing in the Evening Chronicle every night so start collecting! You can forward tokens to the addresses below or contact us at any time for more information.
