Your chance to be pictured with an Olympic torch in Cirencester
12:00pm Tuesday 7th August 2012 in News
OLYMPIC torch bearer Jenny Hincks was chosen for the honour in recognition of the work she does in the community.
Now Jenny, together with her daughter Kate who was also an Olympic torch bearer, are hoping to raise money for charity by offering residents the chance to have their picture taken with one of the London 2012 symbols. Jenny, a Cotswold District Council member, has already taken the torch around the authority's Trinity Road offices raising £120 for charity.
She is collecting money for Gloucestershire Young Carers and the local branch of The Stroke Association - CDC chairman Cllr Sir Edward Horsfall's chosen charities of the year.
Both Cllr Hincks, and Kate will have their torches at Cotswold Leisure Cirencester on August 13 from 10am-12noon.
Anyone can have their picture taken whilst holding the torch for a small donation to charity. People should bring their own cameras.
