An up-and-coming TV sports presenter is supporting the £20 million ‘Make It Better’ appeal to help fund Sheffield Children’s Hospital’s big redevelopment.

Dan Walker, from Hunters Bar, presents the BBC programme Football Focus, and has put his name to a charity day next year at Hallamshire Golf Club where he is a member. The event is set to feature famous sporting names, and the precise date is yet to be fixed.

Dan will soon be hosting a send-off for the club’s other rising star, Matt Fitzpatrick. The former Tapton School pupil, aged 18, won the Silver Medal in the Open Championship last month, and is heading for Chicago on a four-year golfing scholarship.
