Garry’s a charity champion and so are all of these people who raised money with fantastic sponsored events in years gone by.
From scary scarecrows at Grange Park Primary School to a slave auction at The Smugglers, we have loads of retro scenes for you to enjoy.
A musical party in Grindon and a charity boot camp in 2014 are also in our archive photos.
Take a look and then get in touch with your own fundraising memories.
