Riccall youth to carry the Olympic torch

images-1

Last year Danny Rodwell of Riccall was nominated to be a torch bearer in York. He recieved a phone call in November to say that he had been given a conditional offer, based on security and background checks and finally recieved an email this month to confirm his place.

He was nominated last May for his participation in cycling from John O' Groats to Lands End with his dad back in 2009, raising money for Cancer Research and also for his help with coaching youngsters at Riccall Utd.

Danny said 'This is a once in a life time experience and I feel very honoured to be given this opportunity.' 

The Council wishes Danny well with the experience and hopes that the community feels proud of his achievements. Well done Danny!
