Carrying the torch for Parkinson's UK

The Olympic Flame arrives in the UK today and we wanted to congratulate the fantastic torchbearers who've been selected because of their work for Parkinson's UK and supporting people with Parkinson's.

There are 8,000 torchbearers who will carry the Olympic Flame across the UK. They have been selected for being inspirational figures in their local community.

Congratulations to:
  • David Denmead (pictured right), carrying the Flame on 19 May (Day 1) through Stenalees
  • Janet McCulley, carrying the Flame on 19 May (Day 1) through St Austell
  • Lilian Quinn, carrying the Flame on 19 May (Day 1) through Lanivet

Carrying the Olympic torch is a fantastic honour and we are proud to see a selection of our dedicated volunteers have been chosen to carry this icon on its journey around the UK.

We rely on our network of committed volunteers to help us with our vital work supporting people with Parkinson's and their families and carers. Congratulations to everyone who has been chosen.
