Freddie Mercury once sang that radio was his only friend through teenage life.
However, for Adrian Rumsby, it has become the inspiration to take on the challenge of a lifetime.
The 46-year-old has decided to walk the Great Wall of China, to raise money for a children's charity appeal.
He will be taking part in the China Trek 2017, organised as part of Global's Make Some Noise appeal, which helps support children and families living with illness, disability or depravation.
Mr Rumsby, of Howard Street South, said: 'As I suffer from mental health problems, I know what it is like to go through tough times, which is why I want to help other people.

'This will be my way of giving something back to the community.'
Mr Rumsby has booked his place on the trek, alongside 29 others, however he still needs to raise a minimum of £2,975 for the cause.

'I tend to get very anxious around new people, so settling into a group of people I don't know will be hard,' he added. 'I'm really going to be putting myself out of my comfort zone with this, but I know it is for a good cause.'
The challenge takes place between March 31 and April 8, 2017, but Mr Rumsby has already started preparing.
