Jo calls for local Olympic Torchbearer nominations

Jo has called for local champions to be nominated to carry the Olympic torch next year.

The Olympic flame will pass through Glasgow on 8th June 2012, and 8,000 inspiring people who have made a difference to their community are being sought from across the UK to help its journey.

Members of the public can nominate people they would like to see carrying the torch, and Jo is encouraging local people to get involved with this exciting event before the deadline of 30th June.

Commenting, Jo said:

“In my work as East Dunbartonshire’s MP I have seen a great many people who go above and beyond the call of duty to make a real difference to their community. From charity volunteers to inspirational teachers, the once-in-a-lifetime chance to carry the Olympic flame is the perfect opportunity to recognise their local achievements and give them a moment to shine.

I would encourage East Dunbartonshire residents to think about all the people that they would like to see carrying the Olympic flame in 2012, visit the online nominations site,
