I am nominating my mother Sarah Blight to beome a torch carrier. Her grandfather Ted Warren was in the British Olympic Team in Paris in 1924 and again in Amsterdam in 1928 when he won a bronze team medal in gymnastics. My mother has been an inspiration to me and to my sister all our life. She has worked with young people in youth group settings for years and has taken young people on camps, held youth events at our house and always been there as a friend and confidante to so many youngsters. She has worked in a Primary School for 17 years as a school secretary and has regularly held school assemblies to encourage young people to do the best they can and to reach for their dreams. For the last 12 years she has been involved with a charity, Amigos Worldwide, originally started by three of her friends. She has personally been responsible in finding sponsors for 36 children in Uganda enabling them to receive the much needed education that they would not otherwise receive. She has also encouraged others to visit their sponsor children in Uganda and has just returned from a trip where she was working with girls aged between 15 and 25 who had been affected by rebel forces. She tirelessly raises funds and awareness for the poor and underprivileged and makes a way for all to be involved who want to make a difference in this world. My mothers biggest hero was her grandfather and to carry the olympic torch in his memory as a bronze team medallist would be a great honour.
