The Alan Shearer Foundation Big Splash
26 September 2016
Today sees the opening of our Alan Shearer Centre's brand new hydrotherapy suite.
Alan himself will be on hand to cut the ribbon at his namesake project, then three-year-old Jessica Robertson, who joined the Centre when just a few weeks old, will be the first guest to try out the new pool with her adopted family.
The new £500,000 state-of-the-art facility was six months in design, with construction taking a further six months to complete. Twice the size of the original hydrotherapy pool, it offers a mix of fun and relaxation with interactive mood lighting and water and music features. A distinctive full length window looks out onto the beautiful grounds and turns opaque at a flick of a switch.
The entire cost of the work has been paid for by the Alan Shearer Foundation, the dedicated fundraising arm of the Alan Shearer Centre.
