Not exactly sure of how late we arrived at Sunderland but I’m guessing maybe an hour to an hour and a half. As I said earlier, we didn’t care but we had to keep people up to date on social media incase they wanted to join us.
We were joined on the Sunderland leg by Brian Bailes, dressed head to toe in a Santa suit! This certainly lifted our spirits and the 45 minute car journey up to Sunderland certainly helped too.
As with Stewart, we didn’t know the exact route but we were pretty close. Despite the long rest and the santa suit, Lee and I stumbled around Sunderland parkrun. One of the highlights of the day was still to come though and in was in the way of a girl (who we still don’t know the name of). She chased after us and made a very generous donation. She said she had been following our challenge throughout the day on Twitter and to keep going. What we were doing was amazing and it really was worth it. The tears in her eyes were clear to see, so we assumed that Tiny Lives had played a part in her life at some point. If you’re reading this and it was you, please get in touch. This lifted us no end and it helped us to complete run number eight. Thank-you.
Eight down and only four to go!
