Disabled people and their families often travel long distances to benefit from the facilities available at the Alan Shearer Centre in Newcastle. Some families are simply unable to contemplate a journey by public transport due to length of journey and accessibility. With this in mind Lookers Motor Group generously donated a specially adapted vehicle by Automotive Group, which is now on loan to the Centre for two years.

The car – which is wheelchair accessible – will become a lifeline for those families who rely on visiting the Centre for therapy, respite and fun activities.

Lookers officially handed the vehicle over at the Centre’s Christmas Party where Alan was on hand to thank Lookers representative, Andrew Davidson for their very generous donation.

Thank you to Lookers for ‘Looking after us’!
