Lloyds TSB, proud Presenting Partner of the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay, has selected Bob Woodward to be an Olympic Torchbearer in recognition of the difference he has made to children and families around the UK, through his charity work. Bob began his charity work almost 40 years ago, in 1974, immediately after his son Robert aged 8 was diagnosed with cancer. After setting up the first `Home from Home` in the UK for families suffering form cancer Bob founded The CLIC (Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood) Trust in 1976 (now merged with Sargent to become CLIC Sargent). Robert died in 1977 which spurred Bob on to cover the whole of the UK before setting up CLIC International with Mikhail Gorbechev as President. After losing Robert to cancer Bob lost a second son Hugh aged 4, who was Downs Syndrome. This encouraged Bob to make great efforts for disabled children in Hugh`s memory. Bob, now in his 80th year, has helped raise around £100million for a huge variety of charity inititiatives for children.
