A Slam Dunk for Foundation

21 April 2016

The Eagles playing basketball

Fundraisers for the Alan Shearer Foundation will be heading to the basketball courts this week to help raise money for our Alan Shearer Centre.

This Friday, 22 April, there will be excitement on and off court as Newcastle Eagles take on the Cheshire Phoenix in the basketball play-off quarter finals at Northumbria University's Sport Central.

As well as a literal 'battle of giants' there will be a chance for spectators to win some fantastic prizes, including a Newcastle Eagles jersey, signed by Alan Shearer and the Eagles team, as well as Amazon Fire TV sticks.

Raffle tickets will be available at the event for £1 each, sold by our Foundation volunteers, who will also be helping out at the 'Chuck a Duck' competition. This quirky game involves spectators buying a rubber duck for £1 which they then throw at a target on the court – the nearest to the target wins!

Tickets for the match and further information is available at
