The Alan Shearer Centre is counting on our supporters to vote for us to receive a £3,000 bank reward.

The centre has been nominated as one of Lloyds Bank's local causes to receive a payment in its community fund contest. Any funds won would be used to buy an interactive sound wall and musical waterbed which would benefit children and adults with a range of profound disabilities and sensory impairments.

"Everyone at the Alan Shearer Centre is absolutely delighted to be on the shortlist for the Lloyds Community Fund 2013. The additional equipment will extend the range of therapeutic and sensory facilities we offer and make a genuine difference to the lives of everyone that uses the centre," said services manager, Jackie Dunn.

To vote for the centre to receive the funding simply visit the Lloyds website and follow the instruction. You can also vote by texting VOTE CJND to 61119. Online voting is free, however, text voting will be charged at your mobile network provider's standard rate.

You can vote for the centre in person at Lloyds Bank branches at Newburn, Osborne Road Newcastle, the Gosforth Centre and Benton Road. Ask a member of staff for a voting token.

The closing date for votes is Friday 1 November 2013.
