Huddersfield man completes gruelling charity challenge to raise money for NHS

  • Stephen was cheered as he arrived to his finishing line at the hospital

A man from Huddersfield, who was born with cerebral palsy, has completed a gruelling walking challenge to help raise money for the NHS.

Stephen Collins walked up and down his road for 61 days, before his final 2.5 mile trek from his home to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

Stephen, 61, has raised more than £2,500 for NHS workers who looked after him when he broke his leg in two places last year.

I owe the NHS so much for getting me back on my feet which got me wondering what I could do to raise money for the NHS to say thank you and of course, my two very own helpers - my wife (who is a nurse) and my daughter (who works in the care sector).

The cash raised will go to Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Charity and Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust.
