Award winning social entrepreneur – Kelly Davies, was one of the lucky UK residents to be selected as a torchbearer during the Olympic torch relay.

Kelly, is Managing Director of ‘Vi-ability’, a Conwy based social enterprise which transforms football clubs into centres of opportunities & leadership for individuals in their community through education, training & employment.

‘It was a fantastic – once in a life time experience. I’m still overwhelmed now!’ Kelly said, after carrying the torch through Colwyn Bay.

Read Kelly’s nomination story! You can watch Kelly’s leg of the relay, which also involved the torch travelling to the summit of Snowdon and taking a ride on a RNLI Lifeboat.
