Alan hosts his latest fundraising ‘drive’

The Alan Shearer Foundation has received a tremendous £33,000 boost from this year's fundraising golf tournament at Close House.

The annual event, which is organized by Alan along with friends like Close House's Graham Wylie, hosts teams of local business owners and famous names from the football world such as Steve Harper and John Beresford.

Competition was friendly but fierce for the prize for the longest drive and four “nearest the pin” prizes of a year's free car insurance. Nobody went home empty handed though as there were goody bags for everyone containing a polo shirt, sleeve of golf balls and some consolation sweets.

Thanks to everyone who sponsored and supported the event and to photographer, Chris Lishman, who came along to record the day. You can see some of Chris' pictures in our Gallery.
