Visit to the Olympic Stadium - Your Personal Best Campaign

What a lovely experience we had yesterday. After taking part in the filming before Christmas, we were invited to be at the launch of the Glaxo Smith Kline initiative to encourage people with chronic conditions, and the over 55's to be more active to increase their quality of life.  Just click on the "Your Stories" button to see people's experiences with different conditions.

This is supported by the British Lung Foundation, which is how I became involved. Look at "Achieve your Best" on the BLF website.

Our hotel room looked out over the new Olympic Stadium and the Anish Kapur sculpture and the presentation took place in the John Lewis Stadium Suite where we were fed lovely light pastries and other yummy things.

We met Arlene Phillips and Len Goodman who are supporting the initiative. they were good fun, as you can see in one of the pictures.
We are really pleased and proud to have taken part in this Personal Best campaign and hope it encourages others to achieve more and get more out of life.
