With the countdown to the Olympics ticking down ever faster, some of the athletes have begun arriving at Heathrow airport to get settled in ahead of the games. Thanks to teams of enthusiastic Olympics volunteers, these visiting competitors are being warmly welcomed as they arrive in the UK and assisted with their transfer to the Olympic village in Stratford.
The volunteers are obviously thoroughly enjoying the excitement of playing a key role in the build up to the games, and are making sure that a sense of fun pervades proceedings. So some of the athletes and coaches arriving today were met a rather familiar looking group of volunteer greeters.
One particular welcoming committee had donned mask-arade sports personalities face masks depicting a selection of British sporting stars which made it look as if UK Olympic hopefuls such as Chris Hoy, Tom Daley, Jessica Ennis and Andy Murray had turned up in person to welcome the visiting athletes. We’re sure the amusing sight brought a smile to the traveller’s faces after their long journeys!
We’re big fans of the quality card mask-arade masks range here at Partybox HQ and find them perfect for injecting a bit of fun into all kinds of occasions, including fancy dress parties, sporting events, hen nights, stag dos and birthday parties. So come take a look at our fabulous range of celebrity face masks and make some fun of your own!
