A PIECE of sporting history came to town at the weekend.

On Sunday the London 2012 Paralympic Torch arrived at the Kirkintilloch branch of Sainsburys, with excited staff and customers taking the opportunity to take a picture of themselves with the famous bit of memorabilia.

The event also raised cash for local charity Whizz-Kidz - who support disabled children with advice and equipment.

Pictured with the torch are duty manager Chris Murphy, Carol McKinlay from Whizz-Kidz, and Sainsburys staff members Debbie Holmes, Sharon Wilson, Kevin Motherwell and Denise Dunlop.
