A campaign for a new community skate park to be built in memory of a much-loved Leeds skateboarder has taken a step forward.

Plans for a new lit concrete facility in Rothwell to replace a skate park considered dangerous when wet in Springhead Park have been boosted by the news that a community charity has been set up.

The 8010 Association charity, which was set up to provide a legacy to Daniel Parrinder who was killed in a car crash last year, has been established to raise funds for a potential new skate park.

Around 1,000 people have signed a petition backing the campaign. Visit www.facebook.com/skateparkforrothwell.
