A REDDITCH boy born on a special day had his own unique part to play in the Olympic Torch celebrations.
Michael Armour, who now lives in New Zealand, was one of 19 Promise Children to attend a special event at Cannon Hill Park on Saturday (June 30) for a concert headlined by popstars The Wanted.
The seven-year-old originally from Batchley was born on December 20, 2004, on what is known as '2012 Day', making him eligible to take part in the ceremony thanks to Children's Promise.
Every year he receives a birthday card from Olympic organiser Lord Sebastian Coe and this year he was also given t-shirts, goody bags, a certificate and the chance to hold an Olympic Torch.
His mother Shelly said: "Michael was actually ten days late. I remember being in hospital and the nurse told me the day was a special day. I didn't think any of it until I saw all the newspapers and the next day I registered him straight away.
"We waited seven years for this special day to arrive and it was just absolutely brilliant.
"When I tucked him into bed on the night he said to me 'it was a fantastic day'. It's definitely something he will look back on and remember for the rest of his life. I know I will."
