Brian, 62, sponsors local sports clubs which raise money for his campaign, collects at local pubs, and raised at least £16,000 from a Just Giving page.

He was made MBE last year for his services to the community and the charity.

Clare Howarth, head of the north of England at Diabetes UK, said: “He is a real community champion and we are lucky to have him."
