Hundreds are expected to line the streets to congratulate the 26 year old, who won gold in the Women's Pairs event at Eton Dorney alongside Heather Stanning.
Helen only began competing in her sport in 2008 having never picked up an oar before. She had responded to an advert for the Sporting Giants programme, which was designed to create future athletes for the London 2012 Games.
A former student at Humphry Davy School in Penzance, Helen will be accompanied on the open topped ‘Victory Bus’ by the school’s brass band. She will also be joined by local sporting figures, torch bearers, close friends and family.
The ‘Victory Bus’ will depart from Newlyn Quarry on Sunday and will travel past Helen’s parents’ Ice Cream shop and the Golden Post Box near the harbour, before making its way through town to Humphry Davy School.
There, Helen will be the guest of honour at a Civic Reception with family, dignitaries, former teachers, sporting coaches, team mates and school friends.
