Hi my name is Stephen . I have been doing things for Children In Need since 1990 . These include Cycling between Blackpool and Scarborough . I have also walked The Bradford Ringway Walk twice , I have been collecting on the streets of Leeds , some office blocks and a factory , dressed up as a deep sea driver for many years . When Daniel was born I decided to do an event with him and a pram push was an ideal thing to start off with it has continued year on year with my Dad Alan walking with us until he passed away a couple of years ago . It's about 20 miles we walk in total back to Leeds going through Otley , Bramhope, Headingley etc  . I hope you will be able to donate to my page . Last year I raised £4,500 approx and in 18 years of doing the walk we are up to £55,649.99.
