The money was raised during the 8th annual Armed Forces Day, held in Bents Park, South Shields last month, which was attended by more than 7,000 people.

Around 300 riders on bikes, trikes & scooters rode from Hells Angels club house in Sunderland along the seafront to Bents Park for the start of the event.

The day featured military parades, live entertainment, trade stands and classic cars.

The Army, RAF and Royal Navy were also represented with a host of activities including a paintball range, climbing tower, military vehicles and the Royal Navy Bomb disposal unit.
