Olympic torchbearers: Colin Renshaw

We're looking again at LGBT Olympic torchbearers and their nomination stories:

Colin Renshaw of Wirral, age 45
Carrying the Flame through Bolton
Carrying the Flame on 31 May 2012

Colin's nomination story

I would like to nominate Colin Renshaw for his outstanding and dedicated contribution to his local community, particularly that of the LGBT Community of Greater Manchester. Colin has worked tirelessly on a voluntary basis for a variety of organisations, including the 2002 Commonwealth Games and various other sports events, but has particularly excelled himself as a team leader/ volunteer coordinator (voluntary positions themselves) with both Manchester Pride and the Manchester International Festival - dedicating many hours despite obstacles such as serious ill health and redundancy. He is a credit to his community and would take great pride and honour in the role of Olympic Torch Bearer if selected.
