206 goals for Newcastle United gave Alan Shearer cult status on the pitch and since his retirement in 2006 he’s not stopped giving back to the people of Newcastle off it.
The Alan Shearer Centre, created after his testimonial in 2006, is a specialist facility for people with complex disabilities. Shearer’s kindness has inspired others to give back to the Centre themselves, particularly Carolyn Lawson who went from attendee to devoted volunteer - a worthy winner of the Barclays Spirit of the Game Award.
