Queen Baton Relay batonbearers nominations

This is a huge milestone for the Queen’s Baton Relay, as following its journey across the Commonwealth, the Baton will return to England, where it will spend 25 days traveling the length and breadth of the country and we need 2,022 Batonbearers to take on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of carrying the Baton!
