Do you fancy lending a helping hand to Team 2012?

You could play a pivotal role in preparing the likes of Jessica Ennis and co gear up for the biggest moment in their sporting careers: London 2012.

‘Be There with Team 2012’ is the official funding raising programme for over 1,200 British athletes striving to be selected for Team GB and Paralympics GB at London 2012. The aim is to raise £2 million to help ensure that British athletes are the best prepared, best equipped, best supported and most ambitious group of elite sportsmen and women possible at London 2012 and ultimately win more medals.

‘Be There with Team 2012’ is encouraging members of the public to get behind and support Team 2012 athletes. Donations of all amounts are being accepted and welcomed on the website www.team-2012.com up until the end of the year.

Additionally, if you donate over £5 and answer a competition question correctly between now and 27 November you will be in with a chance of winning tickets to the Olympic or Paralympic Games next year.

Jessica Ennis said: “The funds raised by Team 2012 are absolutely essential. The £2 million we aim to raise through ‘Be There with Team 2012’ represents a critical sum we need as athletes to get a final boost as we prepare to represent our country at London 2012.

“Every pound really will make a difference to Team 2012 athletes. I know from personal experience how fine the margins are in elite sport, and the money raised will help the British teams  prepare to the best of their ability and make the most of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of competing at a home Games.”

To donate and be in with a chance of winning tickets to London 2012, visit the re-launched Team 2012 website at www.team-2012.com
