Marathon man opens Newman School adventure path

Ray Matthews, the pensioner who ran 75 fundraising marathons in 75 days, was joined by Rotherham Mayor Eve Rose Keenan to dig the first turf for a new woodland adventure path at Newman School. The school supports young people with physical disabilities, medical needs and complex learning needs. Matthews raised £75,000 for the adventure path and for new playground equipment to provide a safe and stimulating environment to play, grow and learn. Baillor Jalloh reports for Sheffield Live!
