Vinnie lives with Auntie Jan. He accompanies her to all the important sporting events she works at as a volunteer. Over the past couple of years they have each put together a very impressive CV, which, hopefully will help towards them being selected as official volunteers for the Olympic Games in London 2012. So Lord Coe, if you’re reading this, please pick Auntie Jan and Vinnie for your team, they won’t let you down!
We were very impressed by Vinnie’s accreditation, he has “Access All Areas” which must be very exciting. He has met people of proper nobility like Prince William, who he said was a very sweet young man who made all the ladies go weak kneed with his royal loveliness.
We felt proud and blessed, in a Hello Magazine type way, to have such a special friend, who gives of himself and his time so freely to help others in their quest for sporting excellence sharing our tea and gypsy creams with us.
And his altruistic spirit has encouraged us to do more to help others too ………
Starting with our Trick or Treat Midnight Walk for Compton Hospice. We showed Vinnie our costumes (they really glow in the dark, how brilliant is that?) …. not quite his smart tracksuit bottoms and polo shirt …….. but it’s a start.
