Beccy Barr of BBC North West Tonight presented a special feature about Steve Prescott which aired tonight, 30th June 2016.

Thanks to Steve Prescott's act of bravery pseudomyxoma sufferers are now surviving. By undergoing pioneering surgery at the Churchill Hosptial in Oxford other people are now living and tell of their thanks.

A team of 38 climbers who took part in the Spectrum Kilimanjaro Challenge in 2015  not only  reached Uhuru Peak the summit of the 5895m (19341ft) Mount Kilimanjaro in 6 days instead of the more usual 9 days, but also played the World’s Highest game of rugby to raise funds for, and awareness of the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF).

Over 200 family, friends and Steve Prescott Foundation supporters joined in the £Million celebrations at the Yorkshire Three Peaks event at the weekend. 150 walkers tackled the gruelling 24 mile trek over Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside raising funds and awareness of the SPF.

The sun was shining as the intrepid walkers set off at 0700 from Horton-in Ribblesdale supported by Kuta Outdoors. Phil Lee and his team provided phenomenal support and expertise throughout the day and the SPF thank them so much for their fantastic work in keeping everyone safe and on track. We highly recommend their services to anyone considering completing walking challenges not only in Yorkshire but right across the UK.

The highlight was not only Passing £Million Pound donations to charities with such a great challenge, but Steve and Linzi’s sons Taylor age 14 and  Koby age 9 completing the challenge with Linzi. It really shows how passionate they all are at continuing Steve's legacy and following in the great mans footsteps.

Please be advised that due to circumstances out of our control that we will not be using the Station Inn at Ribblehead for the event. We are now using the Dalesbridge

This will be the location for the evening celebration with the marquee, hog roast and live band Stillia

Everyone booked in for camping will now stay at Dalesbridge. People previously booked into the Station Inn and Station Inn Bunk Barns will now be staying at Dalesbridge. Breakfast will be provided by the SPF at Dalesbridge. You will need to make your own way to the start point at Horton

Bookings already confirmed for Gearstones Cottage and Gearstones Lodge will still be honoured. As these are a further distance away from the start of the walk and the evening entertainment there is a coach booked to pick you up at 0600 to take you to the start at Horton. Breakfast will be provided at Horton You will be bussed back to Gearstones at the end of the evenings entertainment.
