I know jenny would be absolutely thrilled to carry the torch as part of the olympic ceremony next year. She is passionate about sport . As a player she has played for Morpeth Ladies Hockey club, Captained Northumberland County U18s and taken part in hockey at a regional level. She is a county Netball player and was very proud to take part in the schools national Netball championship 2 years in a row. As a volunteer, she has been on the Northumberland Hockey youth panel for 2 years, organising and speaking at events, introducing guests, and raising funds. She has also been part of the Hockey Action Group in Northumberland, presenting the views of youth hockey players across the region. She has gained her coaching award and is assistant coach to one of the county teams. All this and just turned 18 years old!!
She was diagnosed with Epilepsy almost 3 years ago and never once has she let that get in the way of achieving her best in all sport. She has received 2 lots of brilliant news recently - her epilepsy is possibly in remission and her excellent A level results have ensured her a place on the Sports and Exercise Science Degree course at Loughborough University. Let's hope good news comes in threes and she is successful in becoming a torchbearer - she really deserves it !
