Santa hat, angel wings or a mince pie?

Sat 22nd Dec come along dressed up to celebrate Christmas. We want to see a plethora of Santa hats, Santa outfits, elf costumes, fairies, angels, shepherds, wise men (we'll be lucky), cows/sheep (one per parkrunner on a short lead), Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus (within arms length of a responsible adult) and any other costumes even vaguely related to the Christmas period and in however a manner you choose to celebrate it. This is your Sunderland parkrun family and it's our Christmastime parkrun together. Everyone, it's time to twinkle twinkle and sparkle like a little parkrun star.


Sunderland foodbank Saturday

Happy midweek everyone. This coming Saturday will be our first parkrun of November and hence we’ll be holding our usual Sunderland foodbank collection. There is absolutely no expectation that you will donate, but if you are able and you would like to, the foodbank is most in need of Tinned Fruit, Tinned Fish, Coffee, Custard, Rice Pudding and Tinned Potatoes/Instant Mash. (They have plenty of Beans, Dried Pasta, UHT milk, Cereal and Biscuits). Thank you. Please note, we will also have a student coming along who is making a film for Sunderland Foodbank.


Popping out to the shops?

This Saturday is our '1st Sat of the month Sunderland foodbank collection', so if you can bring along any long life foodstuffs that would be great. They are in particular need of tinned fruit, tinned fish, coffee, custard, rice pudding, tinned potatoes/instant mash. (They have plenty of beans, dried pasta, UHT milk, cereal and biscuits.)
