The St Benedicts Giving Tree has returned to the Bridges this Christmas to raise money for charity.
Steve Cram, a former Olympian athlete and supporter of St Benedicts Hospice placed the first bauble on the tree in memory of a loved one.
The tree provides the people of Sunderland with the opportunity to hang a bauble with a hand-written message in memory of someone special.
Stop by, make a donation and hang your bauble on the tree. Visit the tree outside Tesco this Christmas.
