Honour for John

AFTER both reading of the exploits of John Burkhill, The Mad Walker with a Pram, and being lucky to run alongside him during the Sheffield half marathon and Great North Run, I would like to say that here's a man who deserves to be nominated in the Queen's honours.

I have just tried to do so myself using the templates on the direct.gov.uk website but don't have any of Mr Burkhill's details which are all necessary for nomination. So my hope is that people get behind this and nominate John for an honour in the Queen's next honours.

Sarah Whittaker-Gilbey,

Moorwoods Ave, S35.
