Straight from the horse's mouth..

02 December 2014

Starters orders; and we were off! The Alan Shearer Foundation Car Raffle Roadshow wasn't horsing around this weekend when we met at Newcastle Racecourse for the Fighting Fifth Race Meeting on Saturday 29 November.

Volunteers were chomping at the bit to mingle and sell Car Raffle Tickets to the 5,500 strong crowd that had gathered at the Racecourse.

Great day had by all. A big thank you to all of the public for supporting us. Whilst we weren't there furlong, we managed to raise a staggering £2,335 for the Foundation.

The winning raffle ticket holder will be presented with a brand new car and a year's free insurance at the Alan Shearer Foundation Ball on 17 January 2015. All funds raised from the raffle go directly to support the Alan Shearer Centre.

If you missed out at the weekend and still fancy the possibility of motoring into the New Year there is still the chance to grab yourself some tickets at upcoming events:

•If you are jetting off don't forget to make a pit stop at our Newcastle Airport stand, there until 11 December

•No one is hounding you, but you could meet us at Newcastle Dogs on Saturday 13 December

•One last chance for you to be the front runner in our raffle, pick up tickets on 20 December at Newcastle Racecourse Northumberland Chase Christmas Race Day

If you are interested in volunteering for the Foundation at any of these events please send a email to Kate at
