BBC Radio Lancashire’s Graham Liver has begun his 100-mile challenge.

He’s pulling a bed all the way from Pudsey in West Yorkshire to Bare in Lancashire for Children in Need.

Liver set off on Saturday (12 November) and has already sustained an injury to his leg, but he’s pushing on through.

He said: Graham said: “In terms of training, I’ve been doing plenty of walking. For example, every morning I walk from the car park to the studio and then from my desk to the vending machine.

“I’ve also been trying to get into the mind set of my passengers by spending most of the day lying down in my bed.

“The bed looks fantastic and on the run up to Liver’s Lancashire Lie in we’ve been helped out so much by local firms across the county.

“It’s also been great to spend some time visiting the organisations that benefit from Children in Need money. It’s made me realise how vital the charity is to children and young people across Lancashire.”

Graham will be presenting his breakfast show from the road as he travels through Lancashire on his challenge. He’s due to come through Preston on Tuesday (15 November) and complete the challenge in time for Children In Need on Friday night.
