Granny Annexe Olympics

 

I am sure there is no need to explain what the Olympics is but just to make sure, its one of the leading international sporting events where top athletes from all around the world amaze us by pitting themselves against each other and reaching levels of fitness or technical ability that takes years of training to accomplish. Something we love about these massive sporting events is that it inspires us to get up, get out of the house and start doing some exercise.

Share your Olympic inspired photos with us for a chance to win £200!

We want to inspire you to get up and do a little sport, or at least pretend, Granny Annexe is offering a £200 for the photo that inspires us the most.

How to enter:

What you need to do is like our page and send in a photograph, the photo needs to be related to the Olympic games (please don’t include the Olympic rings in your photo), we have a few tips below of what you could send in.

  • Athletes like to pose when they have won a medal, we are all aware of Mo Farah and his M pose, or Usain Bolt and his pointing. Get the family in their sporting gear and pose like Bolt.
  • Re-enact an Olympic final, get the family in the garden, some tape and that famous sprinters lean over the finish line.
  • Get out to the track, has the Olympics inspired you to get out and take up a sport if so a photo of you enjoying your new found sport.
  • The photo you send in doesn’t need to be taken right now, you could send in a photo of your sporting achievements from time gone by, if you can provide some history to the image that would be preferable.

You can send us a picture through our social media channels, this includes facebook, twitter, Instagram or by email to info@grannyannexe.com

How the Winner Will be Picked

To find the winner, all of the Olympic inspired images you send in will be posted to our Facebook in a gallery, likes or shares will contribute substantially towards winning the prize so get liking and sharing, they will then be assessed and a winner will be decided by the Granny Annexe team by vote.

National Grandparents Day is quite a new event to the UK. It originated in America as a secular holiday since 1978 and officially recognized in a number of countries on various days of the year.

The celebration was introduced to the UK in 1990 by the charity Age Concern. It has been celebrated on the first Sunday in October since 2008, although it is not widely advertised and has not been as commercially successful as Mother’s and Father’s Day. Businesses specialising in gifts and greeting cards have started merging the respective Grandparents Days with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to try to boost sales.

According to the National Grandparents Day website, the aim of National Grandparents Day is to honour grandparents; give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children and to help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.
