Olympic Torch Bearer Roy Saxby visited Kaizen No-Michi between the Tigers and Main class sessions to show off the torch that he carried as part of the relay. He was chosen to carry the torch through Grimsby in recognition of his career teaching athletics, promoting anti-bullying in schools and his fund raising for countless charities. Roy gave an inspirational talk about the torch relay and his charity work. He also gave students a chance to hold the torch and pose for photographs. Roy is currently visiting schools and businesses in the area with his torch to promote and raise funds for ‘Help Our Hero’s’.
