Caroline always puts the village we live in first. She is on 4 different village committees and also used to prepare and produce our parish magazine which she had to give up because of her other committments. She has raised thousands of pounds for charity having run the London Marathon and swum several swimming marathons as well, all for various good causes. On top of this she had bowel cancer 5 years ago and now wants to become a volunteer for the Colostomy Association to help other peple in her situation and was in hospital again this year for a 2 week spell when her bowel shut down and had to be operated on again. She is a great example of positivity and how you can overcome lifes setbacks and I truly think she would be overcome with emotion to be chosen as a torchbearer.
