5 Sean dives in to help A KENDRAY man will plunge thousands of feet from a plane in memory of a relative. Sean Batty, 23, of Redhill Avenue, is doing a skydive to raise money for the Children’s Heart Surgery in Leeds. His partner Toni’s cousin Paul Farey, 36, of Ackworth, died in May from heart problems. He had a bleed on the brain but could not have surgery because of his weak heart. Paul’s sister Donna, 31, of South Elmsall, said family members raised £3,000 when they held a festival. They have also posed naked for a 2012 calendar and are hoping to raise another £2,000. Sean will do the skydive with cousin Neil Burton on September 18 in Brigg.

PLUG MAY BE PULLED ON CHARITY CLUB IN CRISIS BY MIKE COTTON A CHARITY which helps people access the internet and use computers is in danger of folding if more funding is not found. Oaks Millennium Technology Initiative (OMTI) is known in Kendray as the ‘computer club’. It used to have three staff running its training courses and a drop in centre where adults and children could use computers, but two had to be made redundant in April due to funding cuts. They still come back to help on a voluntary basis. Organisers have vowed it won’t close, and are searching for further funding. But from next April, without extra money, the charity can only survive for about ‘another year’. Mark Holland is the only official staff member left. He said: “We’ve had our

‘If we don’t get any extra funding, our reserves will have dried up after next year’ funding cut by about 75 per cent. At the moment we’re still managing to do about 60 per cent of what we used to do. But it’s costing us about £50,000 a year to run the centre as we are. “The council funds us to the tune of £32,000. “If we don’t get any extra funding, our reserves will have dried up after next year.” Mark says there is still huge demand for what OMTI does. “We’ve had 60 kids in every day through the summer holidays.”

Opening hours have had to be cut at the centre, on Farm Road. Chairman of the charity, Wayne Johnson, said: “We are working tirelessly to get more funding. “If you ask any parent in Kendray, they’ll know about the project. “They’ll all have a good word to say about it. “It’s bringing the kids off the streets, they enjoy it, and they’re learning new skills.” Wayne said he was hopeful extra funds could be found to extend the opening times back to what they were, and to bring extra tutors back on a regular basis. There have been more than 100,000 visits to the centre since it opened in November 2001. G See www.omti.co.uk for opening hours and contact details.

Shoppers go ‘potty’ for traders’ creations BY MIKE COTTON PEOPLE are going ‘potty’ for a particular sort of garden ornament for sale on Barnsley Market. Denise and Alwin Mann, of Ward Green, have used plastic plant pots twined together to create a family of unusual models of people and animals. It started when they wanted to make one model for a friend of the family. Not knowing how many pots they would need, they ordered in bulk from Germany. “We ended up with 5,000 of one size, and 4,000 of another, to try and use up,” said Denise, 64. “So then the imagination Potty creation: One of the garden ornaments created by kicks in.” market trader Denise Mann.

Theresa takes up new role at York THE first fund-raising employee for Barnsley Hospice has left after 12 years. Theresa Barrett, 41, has left her role as income manager at the hospice. She said events like balls and the hospice hobble were initially set up by her and this has continued to be built upon: “I have thoroughly enjoyed working here for the last 12 years. “I feel quite proud to leave the legacy of the income and marketing here at the hospice but it is the support we have received from the people of Barnsley that has really allowed us to do this.” Theresa thanked all the generous supporters of the hospice over the years. She is moving to start a marketing job at St Leonard’s Hospice in York.

PERMANENT artwork adorns walls in Barnsley as a lasting reminder of the ‘art crawl’. More than 120 people visited the first event where they could walk around 30 pieces of art. The work was created by 12 people who are recovering from addiction and are part of the Recovery Through Art group. Helen Boutle, one of the artists working with the group, said: “We had really good feedback, the group was very pleased.

“A few pieces attracted a lot of attention, like a bar stool in Peel Square and a washing line with ‘hung out to dry’ written on it.” There were also drawings of people’s livers and lungs and a ‘sober’ wall can still be seen on Albert Street. “All were asking questions about the crawl and the experiences and it all created quite a buzz.” Afterwards, an ‘alternative night out’ was held and it is to become a monthly event.

year-olds over the last four weeks. Now she wants to show the council, which plans to cut maintenance of bowling greens, the sport is popular with children too. “We’ve seen a lot about how the cuts are going to affect older people but it’s going to affect the kids too,” she said. “There are lots of kids in Penistone playing and we’ve had people coming from as far as Derbyshire, Leeds, Harrogate and Sheffield for this competition.

“It might not be a sport like football or rugby but it is still a surprisingly popular sport that deserves a future.” The nursery nurse, of Westmoor Crescent, Pogmoor, said her dad got her interested in bowling when she was a girl. She even met fiancé Matthew Parks, 27, who is captain of Shaw Lane’s team, through the hobby. “People think I’m mad when they hear I play but I love it. “Shaw Lane is a private club but that doesn’t mean it won’t affect us as we play in a league. If some of those clubs go, we won’t have a league.”

A HOLIDAY to Las Vegas has turned into the trip of a lifetime for a Barnsley woman – thanks to an unlikely online friendship. Kate McMahon, of Bradbury Street, has been given backstage passes to a show by comedy-magic duo Penn and Teller – after she started a Twitter conversation with Penn. The 21-year-old said: “I can’t quite believe it’s happening – it’s all a bit surreal.” Part-time model Kate got chatting to the American entertainer after he paid her a cheeky compliment. She said: “Usually celebrities never get back to you, but I sent Penn some tweets and he replied to say that he liked my picture.” “Then I found out that a website I model for is owned by Penn’s best friend Cyan Banister. She mentioned to him that I was coming to Vegas, and he invited me to a performance to meet him.” Kate will meet the pair after their show when she visits Las Vegas next month.

Old No 7, on Market Hill, is back in business following a £180,000 investment by local brewery Acorn. It’s the first pub venture for the Wombwell company which has been brewing a range of cask ales
