In 2011 both myself and my Labour colleague Paul Blomfield, the MP for Sheffield Central suffered brain tumours. Both of us have made a good recovery. Today I have travelled north to Sheffield before starting the walk tomorrow. Paul and I were guests on BBC Radio Sheffield drivetime show this afternoon with BBC DJ Howie Pressman [brother of the Sheffield Wednesday former goalkeeper]. This evening we are jointly doing an event with Headway in Sheffield.
I am walking for 21 days - Paul and his wife and a few others are doing day 1 with me tomorrow. Looking forward to it.
