Olympic Visit - Team GB vs Brazil

As a result of their outstanding attendance this year, ten children were drawn from the lucky bucket to attend an Olympic event. On Tuesday night the first four (Casey, Mark, Thomas and Myles) got taken to the Olympic football at Wembley stadium.

Filled with hope of seeing a home win, the boys hurried excitedly to their seats. At least two of them had never been to a football match before. With an attendance reaching 70,584, in the national stadium, for an Olympic match, against Brazil, it doesn't get much bigger!

Perched up on Level 5, the boys enjoyed a birds eye view of the pitch. When the England striker pounced mercilessly on a loose ball, the boys had a perfect place to see her thump it home... 1-0 Team GB.

"I don't think I've ever seen so many people!" Casey

It was a great night out. We now have to wait until September when the remaining lucky winners will get to go and see some Paralympic Athletics.
