AN OLYMPIC champion is urging Barnsley residents to put on their walking shoes and support a local walk.
Dorothy Hyman – a double sprint champion from Cudworth – has thrown her weight behind Memory Walk for the Alzheimer’s Society’s.
She will officially start the walk at Worsborough Mill on Sunday, September 16.
Money raised will help to support people living with dementia and their carers. There are around 2,650 people with the condition in Barnsley.
