London-based journalist, Tim Burrows, lost his wallet at Reading festival in 2003 and this week
received a message on Facebook from the man who found it.
The man told Tim that he and his friends had found the wallet and handed it into lost property, but not
before taking £10 from it to buy as much White Lightening cider as possible.
From that day on, the group of friends established an annual cider drinking competition, which they dubbed 'The Timothy Burrows Challenge'.
Tim took to Twitter to share the conversation he had with the man. Tim tweeted: 'Been contacted by a man who found my wallet at Reading 2003, took £10 out to buy cider and held an annual drinking competition in my honour.'
The man, whose identity is unknown, messaged Tim saying: 'Did you lose your wallet at Reading once?'.
Tim replied saying: 'Weirdly just seen this. I did used to go to Reading. Did you find my wallet?'
