The Olympic Torch

Joe carrying the Olympic TorchJoe Shaw, a member of St. Andrew’s Church and a volunteer with Tango, was selected to be one of the privileged few who carried the Olympic Torch on its journey around Britain. After extensive coverage in the local press and television news, the moment arrived. A crowd of friends from Kirkby made the short journey down to Huyton to see him pass, and after a very noisy cavalcade of sponsors vehicles, security, police, and Olympic officials, Joe finally appeared.

There are certain things in life that you’ll never forget, and for Joe this was certainly one of them. A real once in a lifetime experience, and one that is well deserved. Well done!Joe carrying the Olympic TorchJoe carrying the Olympic Torch
