Matthew Burton

English teacher Matthew Burton featured in Channel Four’s series Educating Yorkshire in 2013.

Matthew and his wife experienced a miscarriage on Christmas Eve in 2012, and he has since run the Great Yorkshire Marathon raising funds for the Miscarriage Association, as well as donating his £20,666 winnings from Celebrity Chase in December 2014.

 

 

Although that moment of loss will never go away, it’s certainly taught me a few things. Firstly, to talk about it. It helped. Those who knew about it thought they couldn’t say the right things, I’m sure, but every supportive word helps.
