  • Olympic Torch Visits My House

    one of my neighbours is an Olympic torch bearer

    and has had a fantastic year learning about all that he needs to do throughout the Olympics he has been sponsored by samsung and gets all the gismos inc a 52 inch 3D tv

    He can also travel to any event by chauffeur throughout the Olympics and para Olympics

    after the Olympics he has to travel to Rio to teach their bearers what they have to do

    He has already travelled over the past year to Sidney, Bejing & Rio

    he is only 24 and a community Worker

    anyway he popped round earlier tonight with his torch and we took some snap shots

      That's a rare opportunity! What a great opportunity and experience for your neighbour too.

        That's fantastic. What a great reward for someone who gives a lot to society.

        Great pictures for you and your family to treasure.
