Raising the roof and raising funds

A huge thank you to everyone who attended the Alan Shearer Foundation Ball and dug deep to help raise funds for our Alan Shearer Activity Centre, making sure this incredible service remains free for people with disabilities.

Held at the Newcastle Gateshead Hilton and hosted by our Patron, local hero and former England and Newcastle United striker, Alan Shearer, together with his wife, Lainya, the party atmosphere was boosted with exclusive performances by DJ Spoony and singer, Craig David.

Guests from the football fraternity along with local business leaders helped to raise a total of £125,000, which is a truly amazing sum and will go a long way to helping us make a real difference.

“I’d like to thank everyone who put their hands in their pockets in support of my Foundation and raised this incredible sum,” said Alan.

Our Alan Shearer Activity Centre is free to use for anyone with a disability and you can find out more by visiting our website: or call our friendly staff on 0191 2678118 and they will be delighted to help.
