Running up a grand total

November 2012

Many thanks to our sporting supporters who tackled the Great North Run on behalf of the Foundation. Their combined sponsorship brought in a fantastic total of £3,132.66, including the extra cash provided by Gift Aiding the donations.

While every penny received is appreciated, we feel it only fair to name one runner in particular, who was responsible for raising almost two thirds of that total single handed. Fr. Andrew Shaw of Ss Peter & Paul RC Church, South Shields was sponsored by his friends, family and parishioners to the tune of £2,297.66.

If you would like to help the Foundation reach its annual £250,000 target, please get in touch with us. We can give you some fundraising ideas and supply you with official Alan Shearer Foundation sponsorship forms. All the money you raise will be used to help provide respite breaks and leisure facilities for disabled people in our region.

If you already have an event planned, then send us an email with your story, together with any photos that you don't mind us putting on our website and you might be in with a chance of Alan dropping in to thank you in person!
