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.

Regards.
