Pamela should be an Olympic torchbearer because she is an inspirational campaigner for older and disabled people to have full participation in the community through accessible transport. She has also made a major contribution as a volunteer for improving the health of older and disabled people in her borough. Pamela has led groups of people in Haringey and across London to push for more accessible transport. Her knowledge and energy led to her being chosen by Transport for London as one of its disability advisors. Pamela also founded three Stroke Clubs in Haringey, helping people to cope with the impact of strokes and remain active in the community. As a result, Pamela was asked to help develop the Government's Stroke Improvement Strategy locally, and is still involved in this. Despite her own disability related to living with muscular dystrophy, Pamela's energy, commitment and positivity are an inspiration to colleagues in Age UK and other groups with which she is involved.
