£200,000 Raised for the Alan Shearer Foundation

We were honoured to be invited to perform once again this year at The Alan Shearer Foundation Ball.  Guests at the most lavish event in the region were treated to an explosive set from the incredible Olly Murs and his band followed by dancing to The Paul James Band.  We were delighted when Hollie, Alan's daughter, then Alan joined us on stage at the end of the evening.  Thanks to the tireless fundraising of the team at St Cuthbert's Care and The Alan Shearer Foundation and the generosity of Alan and his family and friends, over £200,000 was raised on the night to support disability in the North East.  For more information visit and to see pictures from the party visit our facebook page.
