Legend Shearer is happy to help

FOOTBALL legend Alan Shearer has offered his backing to an Egremont charity.

helping out: Alan Shearer with Mark, Matthew and Evie Andrews

Former Newcastle United and England striker Shearer – the highest Premiership goalscorer of all time – has shown his support for the Charlie and Kathleen Dunnery Children’s Fund (CKDCF), the charity Egremont rock star Francis Dunnery set up in memory of his parents.

The CKDCF makes donations throughout the year to causes that benefit local children, and Shearer was on hand to help at a recent event at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary’s children’s cancer ward, on which Cumbrian youngsters are treated.

Shearer joined CKDCF’s Mark Andrews, and his children Matthew and Evie, to hand out an iPad, DVDs and games to the ward.


Have your say

What a great group of people - giving up their own time to help others. Makes me proud to be Cumbrian!
