One of my favourite jobs in December is face painting at the Alan Shearer Centre Christmas party, which I have been doing for 5 years now. There's always a wonderful festive atmosphere, and I've finally been lucky enough to get a photo with the man himself ... Sir Alan Shearer!
For Anyone who doesn't know, the Alan Shearer Centre is a highly specialist, respite, residential and social facility for people with complex disabilities and acute sensory impairments. Situated in its own grounds on the outskirts of Newcastle. https://www.alanshearercentre.org.uk/
