John Burkhill - Sheffield’s Madman With The Pram - vowed to carry on fundraising even if it kills him.

One year after he suffered an epiletic attack that put him in hospital, fit-again John insists he’s going to push on right to the end...

Steven Smudger Smith - John Burkill or mad John is a major part of Sheffield and I think he should get freedom of city he’s brought fun laughter to Sheffielders of all ages and raised money continuously for over 30 years

Flame Fanner - Isn’t it about time this man was awarded one of those stars on the pavement outside the Town Hall in recognition for his charity work?

Many a time I’ve seen him out & about in all weathers.

Lynn Carnall - He’s a legend

Sue West - He’s a lovely man, always loves to have a chat when we see him....He deserves a thing outside town hall for all his hard work raising money for macmillan cancer care!

Danum Blade - Regardless of whether he has a star in the pavement HE is a star! Have spoken to him on many occasions, he is often on Bramall Lane when we have a home match and he always chats to anyone who pauses to donate.

On Tuesday we reported that boxing trainer Brendan Ingle was on the mend after a health scare that saw him paralyzed for three days.

Brendan has fully recovered from the epileptic episode and has already been back coaching in his Wincobank gym.

Christian TheOwl Fletcher - Proper Sheffield legend. True gent in all forms. Hope he fully recovers.

Patricia White - blessings coming your way xxxxx
