Paralympic torch visits North Walsham Sainsbury store

The Paralympic torch visited Sainsbury's North Walsham as part of a special tour across the UK.

Colleagues and customers had the opportunity to hold the torch of Danny Leech, who was one of the 620 torch bearers in the 24 hour relay from Stoke Mandeville to the Olympic Park in August. He is pictured with staff members Sandy Powles, Sandra Kerrison and Lorraine Price.

Colleague Tracy Sadler also presented a cheque for �78 to Pauline Robinson, an Olympic Torch bearer who received it on behalf of the Scope charity. The money came from fundraising day at the store back in August.
