Sheffield’s famous charity fundraiser, known as the “man with the pram”, told Sheffield Live! he is determined to raise at least a million pounds for the Macmillan cancer charity. John Burkhill, who turned 80 this month, has already raised more than £500 thousand for the charity after losing his wife, June, to cancer in 1992. The veteran is a familiar sight on Sheffield’s streets and has completed several fundraising marathons and long distance walks. He has previously been awarded a British Empire Medal for his charity work. Azz Mohammed reports.
