Thanks Frank!

Councillor Lott presenting the cheque to Nicola Milne

A football shirt signed by Alan Shearer was among the lots auctioned at a charity evening organised by former North Tyneside Council Chairman, Councillor Frank Lott.

The event helped raise £2,400 for the Alan Shearer Foundation, one of Cllr Lott's chosen charities during his chairmanship of the council 2012/13. Funds were raised by holding a raffle, an evening of musical entertainment and a series of the Chairman's “at homes” around the borough, where members of the local community came together for afternoon tea.

“We are very grateful to Cllr Lott, North Tyneside Council and everyone who took part in the events to help raise funds for the Foundation,” said Nicola Milne, Alan Shearer Foundation Operations Manager.
“The donation will be used to help thousands of people with disabilities, and their families, across the North East by enabling access to the specialist facilities and respite care offered at the Alan Shearer Centre.”

Cllr Lott also donated £2,400 to the Macmillan charity.
