A RADCLIFFE DJ is launching a world record attempt in support of a cancer charity.

Steve Evans, hosts his regular ITM Radio Show, Late Night Friday at 10pm, but on September 17 he is planning not to leave the airwaves until at least 2pm on Sunday, September 26, all to try and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Steve, 47, who now lives in Macclesfield, had his own cancer scare back in 2014, and is now permanently PEG fed after complications with his pancreas.

During the mammoth eight and a half day broadcast, which will be a new Guinness World Record if he succeeds, Steve will be trying to raise as much money as possible for Macmillan, the charity which means so much to him, his family, and friends.

“I have lost a few people very close me to cancer these past few years, and I know first hand the hard work all Macmillan nurses do, and just want to repay them back for all their hard work," Steve said.

“During the broadcast, I will be dedicating hourly slots to listeners, and for a small charity donation of £50, local businesses can sponsor an hour, where they will get promotion throughout their hour, plus as the event will be filmed and streamed live, I will wear any item of their branded clothing if they wish. "Obviously not a mankini though.”
