Olympic Torch Relay

Bob made it to the starting point in the nick of time, for training from LOCOG and a warm up courtesy of Coca Cola. Then off to the street to take his place waiting for the flame to arrive.

I have an enormous ~~THANK YOU~~ to say to all the people that made the extra special effort to come and see me live at such an early hour on a Sunday morning.


The torch-bearing experience was a huge honour and a once in a lifetime experience for me. I was nominated and awarded my place on the Olympic torch relay through my volunteering with the Scout Association. I hope my experience will show the young people that anything is possible. To the adults maybe you would consider volunteering, not necessarily scouting as your interests and the need could be elsewhere.

You can catch the video of my ‘run’ here at the BBC I have also added some pictures of the apprentice touchbearers in our gallery!
