Engineering Students Having a Ball and Raising Funds

7 December 2015

The Society's President and Secretary

Newcastle University's Civil Engineering Society swapped bridges for ball gowns on Saturday night, where they 'yielded' £858 for the Alan Shearer Foundation.

Members of the Society attended the annual Ball, held at the County Hotel in Newcastle, where they were in with a chance to bid on an array of exciting prizes including Premiership tickets and restaurant vouchers.

"We chose the Alan Shearer Foundation because it's a great local charity that provides excellent, free of charge facilities for disabled people." explained Kate McNulty, the Fundraising Officer for the Civil Engineering and Geosciences Society.

"The services they provide are outstanding and incomparable to anything else in the area, which we experienced first-hand when we went on a tour of the Centre. We are really pleased we have chosen to support the Alan Shearer Foundation this year and hope we can raise lots of money".

Guests used the hashtag #CEGsocBall to tweet their fun while supporting the Foundation.

We would like to thank everybody who attended the Ball for their generosity and for supporting the Alan Shearer Foundation.
