A SPONSORED walk from Wombwell Main to Oakwell will take place to help raise awareness of mental health.

The #It’sOkToTalk walk will begin at Wombwell Main and will arrive at Oakwell in time for the Barnsley v Sheffield Wednesday Game.

The route will cover 20 miles, with seven groups taking part in the walk.

Any money raised will be donated to the Samaritans and Project 14 and footballer Luke Thomas donated a signed shirt to the cause which raised £295.

The walk will begin tomorrow at Wombwell Main at 4am.
