Paralympian Going Bananas For Chronicle Sunshine Fund For Kids.

Paralympian Stephen Miller is going bananas for the Chronicle Sunshine Fund.

The local sports star came out to support the charity, of which he is patron, to launch the annual Sunshine Run.

The event, which is sponsored by Irwin Mitchell Solicitors, will take place on June 26 and participants are being encouraged to go bananas to help support the charity.

Stephen joined forces with Irwin Mitchell staff and students from Gateshead Collage to officially launch the 5k fun run which will take place on the Newcastle and Gateshead Quayside.

Stephen said: "I'm hoping everyone will go bananas and support the event, raising lots of money for the Sunshine Fund."
