As I’m sure everyone knows the Olympic Games are being held in London this year, and so at the moment the Olympic torch is on a tour around the country. Recently it passed through Hull, and I was really pleased to see that one of the people honoured with carrying the torch is the infamous Bee Lady of Hull.

You can spot the Bee Lady of Hull, and it’s hard not to in her iconic bee outfit, collecting for AgeUK in Princes Quay shopping centre in Hull. Having collected £87,000 Jean is still collecting, with the nonagenarian is still collecting, with her sights set at a target of £100,000. I was very happy to see her charitable efforts honoured in such a special way.
