Carrying a torch?
Today's public service announcement is brought to you by Crafty Manoeuvres. This could be your moment to shine - or more accurately, you could help someone else to have theirs.
In case you haven't noticed, the design for the London 2012 Olympic Torch was revealed recently. As was some information about the relay route - we now know where the overnight stops during the 70 day relay around the UK will be next summer. Hopefully soon we'll know the exact route and we'll all be able to work out whether we'll be able to see the Torch as it makes its way round the country.
But in the meantime, you have got a chance to get involved yourself. Or at least to nominate someone you know/love/admire to get involved. A lucky 8,000 people will get the chance next summer to carry the Olympic Flame as it makes its way around Britain on its way from Greece to the London games next July. It really will be a once in a lifetime, always to be remembered opportunity.
If you know someone you think deserves to have it, what are you waiting for? Log on and nominate them today. You've got until 29th June to do it through the Olympic Organising Committee, so get a move on. There will be other opportunities through the official Games sponsors, but why wait?
You never know, next summer you might just have someone carrying a torch for you too.
