A campaigner for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in Reading is gearing up to carry the Olympic torch.
Lorna McArdle was chosen for her extensive work in the area, which has included being chairwoman of Reading Pride.
The festival has now grown into a major annual event.
The 43-year-old will be carrying the Olympic flame through her home town on Tuesday.
