THRILLSEEKERS took on a flying feat to raise thousands of pounds for charity.

About 160 people climbed up to the roof of the Stadium of Light to zipwire across the River Wear on Saturday.

Around 160 people leaped off the top of the Stadium of Light on a zip wire at the weekend to raise money for the North East Autism Society. Some did it with confidence, but most suffered more than a little nervousness with one or two experiencing complete jelly-legs!
The signal is given and there's no going back at this point.

The challenge, set up by Sunderland AFC’s official charity the Foundation of Light, helped to raise more than £17,000 which was split with the North East Autism Society.
