On Sunday 24th June 2012 the Olympic torch Relay heads to our corner of the country. Huddersfield’s very own champion swimmer for the BOK disability team, actor and inspirational young lady Joanne Kempley has the great honor of carrying the Olympic flame through Brighouse. Joanne also happens to have Down Syndrome.
We hope that as many people as possible will line the streets to cheer Joanne on as she carries the torch along Halifax Road, Brighouse at around 12.28pm.
Everyone at Huddersfield Down Syndrome Support Group wishes Joanne the most fantastic day, we are all behind you Jo!!
