Lorna’s torch relay

Lorna McArdle Olympic Torch Relay Support U
Some of the Primrose Team at Lorna’s torch party.

On Tuesday the Primrose team lined the rainy streets in Reading to see Lorna run (jog? walk?) with the Olympic torch as the first torchbearer in our town. Avid readers of this blog of course already know that we were preparing for it last week and Lorna was even featured in the local paper with us.

She was chosen to be a torchbearer for the fantastic work she had been doing in the local LGBT community by supporting Reading Pride for ten years with six of those years as the chair. In March 2011 she was one of the founders of the charity Support U.

We had a great time and it was fantastic to support Lorna, as well as see the torch. What a brilliant experience!
