The Relay for Life Jarrow event is one of the biggest fundraising events in the borough which takes places each year and planning goes into the event all year round to bring the day together.
Once again crowds come together to fundraise in the fight to beat cancer. At the event, teams took it in turns to walk around the track over a 22-hour period. Survivors of cancer began the event with their Lap of Honour. Participants and supporters also honoured every life touched by cancer during the Candle of Hope ceremony.
A staggering £82,416 was raised which will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
