TWO Asda employees from Bromsgrove are all set to complete their 300-metre legs in the Olympic torch relay over the next few weeks.
Dawn Bayliss and Tom Squibb were nominated by their fellow colleagues after the Market Street store won a sales competition in a Coca-Cola scheme.
Dawn will be cheered on by friends, family and colleagues on Thursday (May 24) as she runs through her home town of Droitwich, close to her where she lives on The Holloway.
The torch is set to travel through New Chawson Lane to Primsland Way via Ombersley Way and Worcester Road between 5.30pm and 6.30pm.
Dawn said: “I just can’t wait.
“I’m not a keen runner so I’m just going to take it at my own pace.”
She is the Bromsgrove store’s Community Life colleague.
The nationwide Asda scheme lets customers vote for local good causes to receive a donation from the chain.
Popular Asda colleague Tom Squibb from Redditch who works on the home and leisure department will carry the torch on July 3 through Loughborough.
He said: “I feel honoured to have been nominated as a torchbearer by my colleagues at Asda.
“There are some torchbearers who have done amazing feats, but I am representing the people who are remarkable in their own way every single day.”
