A man has finally found out what happened to the wallet he lost 14 years ago and it was not what he was expecting.
A organisation of friends found Tim Burrows’ wallet and have been holding an annual celebration foe in his honour ever given after hidden £10 from it and shopping White Lightening cider.
Yep, that all happened.
Mr Burrows, a publisher in London, found out the organisation had picked up his wallet at Reading festival in 2003 after being contacted by one of the men.
‘Been contacted by a man who found my wallet at Reading 2003, took £10 out to buy cider and held an annual celebration foe in my honour,’ Mr Burrows tweeted.

The men eventually handed the wallet into lost skill but had felt guilty about holding the income and had been trying to find Mr Burrows ever since.
An unnamed member of the organisation had a Facebook review with Mr Burrows progressing this week, he wrote: ‘…of march looking back on it, that was very childish and illegal but we always suspicion it would be good to strech out and let you know that it went down as an annual tradition of cider celebration competitions named “The Timothy Burrows Challenge”.

And if you wish to know the manners of the celebration diversion he also explained them to Mr Burrows.
He added: ‘Three teams of 5 had 4 litres of cider between them… it’s a scurry to the end, the winning group on this new year’s book of the diversion managed to win in under 5 mins one group unsuccessful to finish… one group captain spent the res of the night rolled up in a carpet.’
‘Apologies, it was 3 litres between five.’
