Sunderland are appealing for help to complete the third stage of the Stadium of Light facelift

The club's new owners, led by Stewart Donald, have stuck to their promise since taking over from Ellis Short in the summer and have so far replaced 14,000 seats in the north stand, east stand, north east and south east corners.

So far, Sunderland fans have jumped at the opportunity to give the stadium a much-needed makeover and were even joined by members of the Black Cats squad during their second stage last month.
