Dave Humphrey in his Olympic kit
A past tenant board member at mhs homes is auctioning his Olympic Games Maker kit for charity.
Dave Humphrey, from Strood, is putting his tracksuit emblazoned with the London 2012 logo on internet site eBay to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society – mhs homes’ staff-chosen charity for 2012.
Dave was delighted to be selected after volunteering to be a marshal at both the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. He shared his experience with school children at Luton Junior School in Chatham before putting his kit up for sale.
Dave gave a talk to 264 children at the school to fulfil the Olympic pledge to inspire a generation. The talk took place during ‘National Older Persons Month’ to further highlight the important contribution that older people make to society.
Dave said: "I thoroughly enjoyed playing my part in the Olympics and Paralympics, it was fantastic.
I thought it would be great if a further legacy could be that other people could have a souvenir of the games from selling my uniform and thought to sell the items for a very worthwhile charity was a good idea."
