Susan Sedden Olympic Torchbearer visiting centres for over 55s

Susan Sedden, one of the Olympic Torchbearers who carried the Olympic Flame on 10 July in Egham is visiting Runnymede Council’s three Centres for the over 55s on Monday 3 September.

Susan Sedden will be talking about her inspirational story that gave her the opportunity to be one of the 8,000 Olympic Torchbearers and about experience of carrying the Olympic Torch.  Centre clients will be able to touch and hold the torch, and have their photo taken with it.

Susan will be visiting the Centres:

Eileen Tozer Centre at 11am
Woodham and New Centre at 12 noon
Manor Farm Centre at 1.45pm

Head of Community Services, Andy Cryer said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for our clients to see and touch an official Olympic Torch, especially if they were unable to see the torch being carried through Egham on 10 July.  Everyone is very excited about seeing the torch and meeting Susan.”

It is hoped that Susan will also be able to visit schools in Runnymede before her uniform and torch are put into an Olympic themed exhibition in Chertsey Museum in November.
