Olympic torchbearer makes a special appearance and helped raise funds

Date Posted: 23 Jul 2012

Brooke Wilkinson, who has type 1 and was selected as an olympic torch bearer, made a guest appearance at The Brook, Portswood, Southampton last Saturday with her olympic torch bearing uniform and torch.

Her dad, Mark, has a well known local band 'Rufus Stone' who plays there.

Brooke and her dad raised over £300 for JDRF and Mark has offered the services of his band to JDRF for future fundraising.

Thanks so much Brooke and Mark!
