The scarf comes in two sizes, either 90×90 cm costing you £10 or the size I was sent, 50×50 cm costing just a fiver. What’s more all proceeds (and I mean every single penny) goes to the British Olympic Association which aims to help British Olympic and Paralympics athletes deliver their best performance.
There are loads of ways you can use your scarf to show your support for the games and those athletes taking part! The larger 90×90 is a great option if you fancy getting super creative and wearing it as a unique fashion accessory. The smaller size is the perfect size to frame and hang on the wall, or maybe tie around a ponytail or around one wrist! It also makes an awesome gift as my dad can tell you. His a big sports fan and one who is looking forward to the 2012 games so this was the perfect gift for him and he loved it.
The design is fantastic, the hand painted Lion is a visual reflection of a quote that describes the sheer courage, talent and determination of our Great British Athletes. If you look closely you’ll also find 60 HANDS to symbolise the athletes’ sixty million supporters and the map of Great Britain.
If this isn’t your style, Next have also designed the “Official Team GB Scarf” available in the same sizes as above for that of the same money!
So, if supporting the 2012 games isn’t enough to make you rush out and buy a scarf, then how about the prospect of winning a prize? Next, want to see how you use your scarf to support the games…. Will you wear it, wave it or opt for something else altogether?
Here’s my dad getting creative with his…
