A SUTTON Bridge teenager’s moment to shine in the Olympic Torch Relay has been captured in a picture that has gone on view to the public.

Daisy Kilbon (15) ran in the torch relay through Ingoldmells in June and three photographs of her have been framed – one for the Curlew Centre, another for the Royal British Legion and the third for her home.

They were paid for by the South Lincolnshire Environmental Group from Sutton Bridge Country Fair funds that are still helping local good causes, even 12 years after the last event.

Chairman Tom Rowe said: “South Lincolnshire Environmental Group felt that it would be important to commemorate this special event with portraits of our local girl.

“We continue to help good causes in the town and putting a picture of Daisy’s torch relay on view so it can always be remembered is such a good one.”

Daisy, a Jamie Oliver Cooking Skills student at Peele Community College in Long Sutton, was one of the celebrity chef’s runners and was nominated for her achievements in his course.
