Cllr Denise Fox was so proud of her friend John Burkill aged 80 yrs old receiving the highest honour bestowed on anyone “the freedom of the city”. She said “It is so well deserved, John has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for Macmillan nurses. John has walked with his pram wearing shorts and green curly wig in all weathers in over 1000 races. I accompanied him when I was Lord Mayor and collected money with him. John never asks for a penny people of all ages want to willing give him money. He has a smile and a kind word for everyone. He makes people feel special. I feel honoured to know him.
