With a real passion and genuine love of people Jamie, at the tender age of 23, is an inspiration to young and old. Aged 8 he befriended Alan - an adult living on his own, no close relatives - Jamie was the polite, friendly boy who 'adopted' and involved Alan and Alan took a real shine to Jamie. Sadly in 2010 Alan was diagnosed with terminal cancer and with no family to care for him Jamie became the main carer in later months. His last wish saw Jamie delivering his eulogy. A keen athlete and skilful footballer himself, at 19 Jamie gained a coaching qualification and coached children's football - this expanded into all areas of athletics. He gained placement at a local primary school for the summer. Impressed by how he motivated and turned around the children's focus and fitness levels, - he's still there - they created a full time job. Recognised for their athletic achievement the School has won many awards and the children love him. With a zest for life and fitness he still coaches children in his spare time - hosting training clubs during school holidays - with massive waiting lists. The kids are in awe of him - he is their idol! A non-smoking, non-drinking, fun-loving, compassionate, enthusiastic and inspiring, kind young man Jamie is one of the most sincere, pleasant people I have ever met. He truly deserves to carry the torch.
