Denise - an Olympic Torchbearer!

dentorch

Mercy Centre UK’s Denise Gray was one of the lucky people chosen to carry the Olympic flame around Great Britain before the 2012 Games began.



She was nominated and chosen for the honour because of the voluntary work she does in her area, through her church and with community groups, for the help she gives in person (and at her own expense) for orphans in Mumbai, and for the work she does for the Mercy Centre children in Bangkok, in particular fundraising for and organising the annual summer beach holiday for those children with HIV and AIDS.

The photo below shows her, jumping for joy, on Wednesday 11 July on her leg of the relay between Reading and Theale in her home county of Berkshire - to raise funds, Denise had the brainwave of charging people £3 to have their pictures taken with the torch.
