I would like to nominate my mum to carry the olympic torch. She has served our village for over 30 years as a girl guider, giving up time to the young girls of the area and teaching them new skills and giving them new ways of looking at life and developing as young people. My mum has given up two hours every wednesday evening to her girl guiding unit, not to mention countless trips she has organised for the girls. This is on top of the countless planning and prepartation work that she puts in behind the scenes. My mum has also had the stress of having to deal with my younger sisters illness. Katy developed retinablastoma as an infant an lost her eye and had to have extensive chemotherapy treatment, this treatment was carried out at Leeds general infirmery and St James Hospital Leeds. To thank the people who helped make Katy better, my mum has caried out fundraising for Candlelighters, a childrens charity based in Leeds, to help fight childrens cancer. She has organised sponsored walks, disco's and other events to raise money. Finally my mum is one in a million, she would do anything for anyone and gives up her time to help anyone, and i think she meets the values of the Olymipics and she would be deeply honoured to carry the torch as recognition for all her hard work and time.
