Andy Foote Picks Up the Torch for Brain Tumour UK

27 June, 2012 | Charity | 1 min read.

Andy Foote, Founder of The Joseph Foote Trust and Chairman of Brain Tumour UK, will be running in the Olympic Torch relay this Sunday 1st July in Solihull.

Andy will be lighting the torch at 8.18am to then begin his route, which will take him from the roundabout near Solihull train station, along Blossomfield Road and past Tudor Grange Leisure Centre.

If you’re not in the Olympic spirit yet then this will be a great time to get out on the streets and join Andy in his 350yds long jog Sunday morning in Solihull. As the torch relay will start at 7:30am the atmosphere will be fantastic and it would be great to see you along the course showing your support not only for Andy, but what he and Brain Tumour UK represent; winning the battle against Brain Tumours.

Parking shouldn’t be a problem as all car parks in Solihull are free of charge on the morning. Road closures are in place along the route so it is best to arrive early and check the route first. Please note, unfortunately the train does not run early enough on Sunday.

Andy’s message:

“This Sunday I have the honour of carrying the Olympic Torch through Solihull as part of the build up to the Olympics. It’s a fantastic opportunity to reflect on the support each and every one of you has given us over the years with our charitable work and the personal contributions you have made to the brain tumour cause. With your support we have now raised over £2million to fight brain tumours and have supported many families throughout the UK and abroad who are battling this disease.”
