We're a charitable lot here in Sunderland when it comes to helping others.
Just look at these pictures taken from our archives of Red Nose Day celebrations over the years across the city and surrounding area.
We hope they spark some happy memories and please feel free to share them with us by commenting below.
Make sure too you contact us this Friday with your stories and photos from this year's Comic Relief extravaganza so that we can include as many as possible in the Echo and on this website.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org, post them to our Facebook page here or contact our newsdesk on (0191) 5017471.
