The Flame will start its journey at Coventry Cathedral, and later in the day will be taken on a canal boat at Foxton Locks by Torchbearer David Willson from Hollowell.

David spends his time volunteering and serving others and is hoping to encourage hundreds of families around the London area to host 1000 Olympic and Paralympic Family members in their homes for free during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
These families would not otherwise be able to afford to come to the Games and see their relatives compete.

The evening celebration will take place in Abbey Park, Leicester. Towards the end of the two-hour show, the last Torchbearer of the day, Phil Fuller, will light a celebration cauldron on stage at the event which will enable the Olympic Flame to be seen by the audience.

The Relay will travel through the following communities: Coventry, Rugby, Dunchurch, Northampton, Wellingborough, Isham, Kettering, Geddington, Corby, Dingley, Market Harborough, Lubenham, Foxton, Kibworth Harcourt, Oadby, Leicester.


On Monday 2 July, the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay will travel 100.95 miles through 16 communities on its journey from Coventry to Leicester
