Olympic torches at Blandford Carnival
THERE will be another chance to see Olympic torches in Blandford on the final day of the Paralympics when Blandford's bearer Jack Delaney takes part in the Blandford Carnival parade on Saturday.
Jack has invited his fellow torch bearers to join him in the parade, and has so far secured the promises of six of them to carry the torch through the town.
Jack, 17, of The Blandford School, said: "I have always wanted to be part of the Blandford carnival, and now I have a chance I am going for it. It will be an opportunity for those who couldn't make the torch day to see the torch bearers and have their photo taken."
"We are involving school children and the U Support charity which offers experiences to children who are disabled, disadvantaged, or suffering life limiting conditions by attend sporting and cultural events throughout the UK."
