Jarrow March: Rotherham Leg!

The Jarrow March passed through Rotherham yesterday! RAC members were there to encourage the marchers!

Around 30 young people passed through Thorpe Hesley yesterday. They stopped for their lunch at the Masons Arms, and had food paid for by donations from RAC and Rotherham NUT. Marchers were filmed by TV crews and interviewed by numerous journalists!

Around 20 supported turned up to welcome the Marchers into Rotherham, bearing banners and flags, and a few joined the Marchers on their way to Sheffield!

Here are a few videos taken from the internet - one of which inlcudes an interview with Rotherham's Kerry Hitchen!
