The pandemic has put paid to many events over the last year including some which raise money for worthy causes.
So let’s remember some of the wonderful charity scenes we have enjoyed across South Tyneside in years gone by, and look forward to the days when we can do them all over again.
See if there is a fundraising hero that you recognise. And if our archive photos bring back great memories, get in touch and tell us more.
