Mike has nominated Lorette Mackie, a local community champion, to carry the Olympic torch when it comes to Brighton & Hove next year.
Lorette is the Community Development Worker for Portslade and has worked tirelessly for the community for the past 15 years. She is also actively involved in fundraising, Local Action Teams and a number of community safety initiatives. Mike submitted Lorette’s nomination to Lloyds TSB – an Olympic Torch Relay Partner – last week.
Commenting, Mike said: “Lorette is a brilliant representative for Hove and Portslade. I was honoured to be able to nominate someone who works so hard at making the lives of those around them better. I will certainly be in the crowd cheering Lorette on should she be chosen to carry the torch.”
