Radio Lancashire host walks for Children in Need

BBC Radio Lancashire’s breakfast show presenter Graham Liver is to pull a four poster bed over 100 miles.

He’ll go from Pudsey in West Yorkshire to Bare in Morecambe on November 12th with coverage on-air and online. He’ll drag the specially-designed bed along highways and country lanes meeting listeners in many of the towns and villages covered by the station.

Setting off on Saturday November 12th, he aims to complete the challenge in time to help out Pudsey Bear and friends on Children In Need appeal night on Friday, November 18th.

During the journey, Graham will broadcast regularly from his bed on the breakfast show (6am to 9.30am) and Late, Late Breakfast Show (7pm -10pm).

Graham said: “Regular listeners to my breakfast show know I’m always moaning about how I don’t get to see enough of my bed so when the powers that be suggested Liver’s Lancashire Lie In, I jumped at the chance.

“It’ll be great to be able to visit so many different parts of the county over the week but the thought of dragging a four-poster bed up and down some of Lancashire’s biggest hills has got me reaching for the bed covers!

“Thankfully I’ll have a crack team of helpers with me the whole way, made up of BBC Radio Lancashire and BBC North West Tonight presenters – and maybe even one or two famous faces.
“Children in Need is one of the most important things the BBC does and seeing firsthand the difference the donations make to young people’s lives keeps me determined to complete the challenge and raise as much money as possible for such a vital cause.”
