Music and Comedy Fans Help Support the Foundation
11 December 2015
Some of our Foundation Volunteers braved the freezing elements to bucket collect at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle and raised £622.85 for the Alan Shearer Foundation.
Friday 27 and Saturday 28 November saw the Arena flooded by comedy fans who came along for a laugh with comic genius Michael McIntyre.
The North East public weren't put off by the lashing rain and bitter winds and in true 'Geordie' style, supported the Foundation was supported by the crowds with generous donations as well as moral support, which was greatly appreciated by the volunteers.
The following week, another group of our dedicated volunteers were blown away by the North East's support (and almost by the wind!) at the Simply Red concert.
The Alan Shearer Foundation would to thank Metro Radio Arena for enabling us to collect and we'd like to give a massive thank you to our selfless volunteers who have helped the Foundation at such a special time of year.
