BEST WESTERN PREMIER Moor Hall’s Chief Exec to carry the Olympic flame!
Angela Burns, the Chief Executive of Webb Hotels & Travel (which includes Moor Hall Hotel in Sutton Coldfield, The George Hotel in Lichfield, The Gables Hotel near Bristol and Broads Travel Group) has been awarded the once in a lifetime opportunity to carry the Olympic torch when it passes through the Midlands on its journey across the UK.
Angela was picked from tens of thousands of nominations to be one of the 8,000 people who will carry the flame. The judging panel chose Angela because of her dedication to scouting in Yoxall, Staffordshire over the last 25 years. She devotes a huge amount of her leisure time to scouting activities and most recently she has raised over £24,000 to subsidise a visit to America by 27 scouts.
Angela is carrying the flame in Willenhall, West Midlands on 30th June. “I am really honoured to have been chosen to carry the Olympic torch. It’s a great opportunity to feel part of the Olympics and I am sure it will be a wonderful experience and a memory to treasure” she commented.
