A CARING volunteer has been given the honour of carrying the Olympic Flame on its way to London 2012.

Anshul Sharma (33), from Bishopbriggs, works for Olympic partner EDF Energy in East Kilbride, and was nominated in recognition of his involvement with charity work for pensioners.

The married dad-of-one, who has another baby on the way, will run 300m carrying the famous torch through Kilmacolm on June 8.

He told the Herald: “I’m delighted to have been nominated for the honour by my colleagues.”

Anshul is pictured with his wife and son.
