Committed fundraiser Paul Goodrich took to the streets of York to raise money for a specialist school for children with autism.

Mr Goodrich, 38, hopes to raise more than £800 for Pathways School in Castleford after he ran the Yorkshire Marathon on Sunday.

The event was his first ever marathon after joining the running club at the Sweatshop in Castleford.

Mr Goodrich, of Wellgate, Castleford, said: “It went really well and it stayed dry while I was going around as well which helped.

“I was doing the marathon anyway and my friend Lynsey Lumb, who is a teaching assistant at the school, asked me if I’d do it for them.”

The money will be used to help pay for new outdoor play equipment and a meadow at the school.

Mr Goodrich, who was one of more than 6,000 that ran the marathon in York, has so far raised £600.
