MP takes card competition winner on special Olympic Park Tour

Lynne Featherstone MP’s Christmas card competition winner Phoebe Brady on Friday joined the MP for an exclusive tour of the Olympic Park.

The Rhodes Avenue student won the prize after her drawing was chosen for the cover of the Liberal Democrat MP’s 2011 Christmas card. This winter, to mark the London 2012 games, the theme was an ‘Olympic Christmas.’

The 9 year old was joined by her parents, Lynne and some fellow classmates on a special bus tour of the Olympic Park, and saw the now near-completed Olympic venues, some of which will remain after the games this summer.  As a special prize, Phoebe also got to wear Jonathan Edward’s Olympic gold medal from the 2000 Sydney Games.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“We’ve had a really memorable afternoon here at the Olympic Park. It was great to be able to offer such a special prize this year, to get us all warmed up for the summer’s games.

“All the Olympic venues have their own special design, and it was fascinating to see how the park is gradually coming together – with some work still left to be done!

“Phoebe seemed to really enjoy herself – and rightly so, she was a really worthy winner and her winning design was very beautiful. Thank you also to the Olympic organisers for a great afternoon.”
