Rebecca Carries Olympic Flame

Rohan Olympic Torch

Tuesday morning 8am in Leicester our very own Rebecca carried the Olympic flame!

Rebecca ran 300m to hand the flame over before hopping onto the Olympic bus to sit with Gary Lineker and other representatives of the local community.

For those of you who don’t know our Rebecca (eldest daughter of proud dad Mark our IT and Operations Director), she has worked with Rohan for many years in the customer services department, helping out on reception and as Retail Coordinator. She then moved on to Loughborough University where, as well as studying, she has found the time to coach sports in schools, work with Action Fitness to help the elderly take more exercise and take people with disabilities on tandem rides. Plus single handedly establish ‘Get Set’ projects in ten local schools where she trained fifty volunteers to run weekly sessions for the children

All of these extra activities and her amazing enthusiasm and energy earned Rebecca the opportunity to be part of a once in a lifetime event, and her family, friends and the Retail Team who were all in attendance are all very proud!
