Local Hero carries the Olympic Torch in Knutsford

Local junior footballer George Blackshaw is one of the Olympic Torch Bearers due to run in Knutsford on Thursday (31st May).

George, who lost half a leg and half an arm in a childhood accident, doesn’t let his disability stop him doing anything he sets his mind to – including playing football for Appleton Boys AFC, his school and for Cheshire’s Disability Development Squad.

Full details of George’s nomination may be found on theĀ Olympic Torch Relay pages.
