ParalympicsGB Scarf Small 50cm x 50cm, Next, £5*

With the Olympics fast-approaching, Next have proudly set up the 'I'm Supporting' campaign, in conjunction with Next's official Team GB and Paralympics GB Supporters' Scarves.  They have produced two different designs for the scarves - garments that have been designed to be worn as a symbol of our pride, excitement and involvement for the Olympics.  The scarves are not just a fashion accessory, they have a very great meaning behind each design, representing the 900 athletes of our greatest team.  For every participative purchase, all profits of the item will be donated to the British Olympic Association - helping British Olympic and Paralympic athletes deliver their best performance at London 2012 and beyond.

I received the ParalympicsGB scarf.  The Lion face has been hand-painted for this design and powerfully reflects the quote, 'ice in your mind, fire in your belly', descriptive of the drive and determination within our Great British Athletes.  As I touched upon earlier, the designs have a greater meaning behind them than first meets the eye.  On my scarf, below the wording 'our greatest team', you can see 60 hands.  These hands represent the athletes' sixty million supporters.  I am wearing this scarf to show my support and will continue to do so right up until and throughout the Olympics -- will you be wearing yours?
