Congratulations to our Foundation's namesake, Alan Shearer who has received his CBE award in the Queen's 90th birthday honours list.

Alan, who was made an OBE in 2001, was awarded a CBE for his charitable services to the community in the North East, including the Alan Shearer Foundation and Alan Shearer Centre.

Fellow St Cuthberts Care patrons, Ant and Dec, were also honoured by receiving an OBE each for their services to broadcasting and entertainment.

Congratulations from everyone at the Alan Shearer Foundation!
