I would like to nominate James Dixon to be a torch bearer for the 2012 Olympics. James is a committed volunteer within Preston. Despite being deaf James has volunteered at a number of different venues and helped coach a variety of sports especially cricket. James currently volunteers at a multi sports club, coaches for a cricket team and helps coach a variety of sports at a local deaf school three times a week.
